“A few more weeks of digging, then the team comes in and does the resplicing. That could start by mid-July and we could be finished by the end of July. Then there’s the rebalance, where we adjust the ampliers based on our engineering report.”
So, things are progressing according to plan at Silveridge. I asked what the folks at The Resort should expect? “They’ll see us in July, and for sure in August.”
That’s when they’ll bury the lines at The Resort, do the resplicing, add new tops and fittings, then weather-seal and rebalance. All of which will solve the current issues where the heat is affecting the signal.
And that takes us back to working while the sun is shining. There’s simply too much summer sun. Tim asked that we let those in residence at the parks know this:
“As we get closer to the end of the summer, there will be night shifts. During the day, we have to take lots of breaks, so we can be much more productive in the evening. Some nights, we’ll be out there till midnight, or even later. So please don’t be alarmed if you see a ladder and a light.”
Instead of being alarmed, when we see a light and a ladder, let’s be grateful that Tim and his team are committed to getting the project done right before the parks’ season begins.
