2021 (Nov/Dec) – Merrick Lodge
Our team focused on the maintenance of the CGL network and preparing it for winter now that construction is completed on all our repeater sites. Apparently, BC winters can get tougher each year. As our crews battled last winter to remove ice from our mountain top infrastructure, we were told that the weather was far worse than normal. Then this winter began with a bang that saw extreme icing by the end of November. Just a few days after removing the ice from the tower on Little Elizabeth another storm came through to blanket the tower again. The site is stable due to the redundant link and diesel generator until we can access the site again.
