Mt Kunama is a “forward base” along the Dubuy Highway which is used as a transit point to drop off and pick up cargo from Goilala into Port Moresby or from Port Moresby into Goilala.
As of this afternoon (9th July 2016) all 5 sites VISAT equipment is been moved to Mt Kunama.
Tomorrow, Ononge and Kambisea Visat equipment will be sling in.
Due to faults in Woitape Visat, Technical team will fly into Woitape in between the Ononge and Kambisea sling to restore the NBC signal on the Woitape Visat to enable the locals to be able to watch the third State of Origin.
Monday and Tuesday (11 – 12 July 2016), all visat equipment will be sling into locations – Omu, Sopu and Yongai. Omu Visat installation will start on Wednesday 13th July
The maximum days at each site – start to finish – should be 3 at least.
Sopu will start after Omu on 16th July 2016. 3 Days after Sopu, Yongai will start and Kambisea will be 3 days after Yongai. Ononge should be 3 days after Kambisea.
Assuming all goes to plan, all Visats should be up by 26th July 2016.
