08 08 12 Koocheching Trip

I got the chance to hop on the charter to visit Keewaywin and Koocheching for the day... to bad we couldn't stay longer. After checking in on the Dryden Telecom workers and the cellular tower (when are they going to turn that thing on?), we headed off to Koocheching in a beaver float plane. We were met by Jane who lives in the community on the beautiful sandy lake. The community runs on generator power and has a series of cables strung up for internet, along with wireless fed by KA band. the new KWW hop should improve the service and should be up soon. We had a great day checking on the equipment in homes and wiring up the cable shack. The solar powered well was such a gift!
