Diospi Suyana buys the crest of a hill in Casabamba

After two months of preparations

Since 10th March Diospi Suyana has been on the lookout for a suitable aerial tower hill in the Province Chincheros.  Several locations looked good at the outset but had to be discarded for one reason or another.  Yesterday in the city of Andahuaylas the president of the village community of Casabamba and Dr John signed the sales contract.  Initially the signing was planned for last Saturday, but one document was still missing.  A big thank you to Doris Manco who travelled twice into the region visiting several public authority offices thereby laying the groundwork for the purchase.

Diospi Suyana currently owns five radio frequencies and five properties in Southern Peru.  Two aerial towers have been erected so far.  Work should begin soon in Casabamba and Puerto Maldonado.  It was a long and arduous journey, but the result will let us forget the strains and stresses we endured.

For every location we apply the following seven-point to-do list:

  • Buy a radio frequency
  • Buy a property
  • Lay the foudations
  • Build the aerial tower
  • Connect the site to the electricity lines
  • Install the aerial and the transmitter
  • Register the property in the commercial registry

We currently have five locations, which equals 5×7 work processes, of which we have so far completed 15.

The hill’s location is ideal, very close to the electricity lines. Chris Welch is performing measurements.
