On Monday, May 2, Cal Kenny and Brian Beaton travelled with the Blair Electronics team (Bill and Roy) and Carl Seibel from FedNor to Attawapiskat. On Tuesday, they continued over to Peawanuck before returning to Sioux Lookout and Thunder Bay respectively.
Meetings were held with the community leaders, school and health administrators in each community to discuss the installation and operation of the new C-Band earth station that is being installed by Blair Electronics over this coming summer. FedNor is providing the funding for Keewaytinook Okimakanak to do the project management for the purchase and installation of earthstations in both of these communities as well as in Marten Falls (Ogoki). The communities are planning their local connections and applications for the use of this resource.
