Preparing for the installation
The town of Ohtsuchi, which suffered heavy damage by the Tsunami, is a typical hilly coastal town in Iwate Prefecture and many of the temporal houses for the Tsunami victims were built and scattered in the valleys.
BHN built the broadcasting antenna on the highest peak in the town, however, the broadcasting radio wave could not reach well to many of such scattered temporal houses.
Under such circumstances, BHN is now discussing with the town to establish a fundamental solution and, as its 1st step, installed non-stop power circuits in the Ohtsuchi Broadcasting Station at the end of September.
Soon after this, BHN will build a new broadcasting branch studio on a hill to work as an alternative station to replace the main station at a time of emergency and could continue the broadcasting works.
