BAI Communications invests in new 236m tall MF in the Townsville region, Australia.

24 November 2020

In 2020, BAI Communications invested in a new MF mast to ensure the longevity of the ABC Local Radio service in the Townsville region, Australia.

The old mast was built in 1959 and stood at 198m tall. As part of BAI’s commitment to proactive network reinvestment, it was replaced with a new 236m guyed mast, making it the tallest structure in the BAI network. The new mast is engineered to withstand stronger cyclonic winds; therefore, it is more resilient against extreme weather events.

Over 40 people were engaged with this project including RF specialist engineers, structural engineers, civil engineers, riggers, and project management. The successful completion of the project draws on BAI’s high level of expertise in system design, network planning, and implementation – as well as its strong project management and procurement capabilities.

Watch the project from start to finish in this 4 minute time-lapse video:
