Copper Valley Telecom is set to begin a major maintenance project on its Cannon Hill tower located in Chitina. The site is at the western end of the microwave path that connects McCarthy to the rest of the CVT network. Beginning on Tuesday August 2nd there will exist the possibility of the microwave dish on the Cannon Hill tower becoming out of alignment with the neighboring site which would cause a disruption in service along the entire route up to and including McCarthy. Steps are being taken to limit this potential however due to the nature of the work it is not possible to eliminate it completely.
Disruptions, if any occur, are expected to be short in duration as crews will be monitoring the situation closely and have the ability to realign the path relatively quickly. Work will be ongoing until approximately Saturday, August 6th. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this important project that will lessen the chance for future communication service outages.
