Lightning Damage

The severe lightning of Sunday night (5/19) took out a minor point to point link between the Hanson tower and the Heppell location, cutting service to six customers, primarily in the Breadloaf area. Unfortunately, the damage was to an older radio, for which we do not have replacements on hand. We immediately ordered more current replacement radios for the link, which are arriving later today (Tuesday), along with a backup reserve unit. We will change out units on both the tower and Peddlars Bridge ends of the link tomorrow, and shoud have service restored by mid-day.
