Are your sites prepared for the arrival of winter weather? Winter can bring special hardships when it comes to managing a remote site. Sometimes the most simple of things that we take for granted can become a monumental task. One of the often overlooked areas is site access. If your site was to go off the air and you needed to replace parts, do you have those necessary supplies on hand at the site or will you need to carry them in? If we are talking about minor connectors or fuses that can fit in your pocket, as you trudge through the wilderness in your snow shoes, it’s not a big deal. What about if you were required to pack in a large replacement amplifier or receiver? Do you practice remote monitoring, to check for high SWR, and catch an issue before it turns into an outright failure? Do you have backup plans and auto failover in case of an equipment failure? Allow Bressler Communication Consultants to help identify and plan for those often overlooked problem areas. A site survey can go a long way in preventing an extended outage and keep your sites running at peak performance.
