|Building the Booster on Seguruma Mountain
Many things had to be prepared before we could set up the booster on the Seguruma mountain close to Mlalo in the Usambara mountains.
1. In the USA the transmitter was tested, and disassembled for shipping to Moshi by HCJB / Trans World Radio engineers.
2. The antennas and cables were prepared in Moshi and tested.
3. The transmitter's hut was built and disassembled again for transport in Moshi
On September 27th 2000 Chakusaga from the Church Office and Pastor Ficha organized many people helping to carry all the equipment up the Seguruma mountain. Among them many boys from the Secondary School and many Senjors of the congregation.
After a short prayer led by Pastor Ficha the transmitter hut was assembled and the antennas set up.
