Baca mentioned that he has installed 3 of LBA Tunipole Antennas in Mexico.

Due to the good relations of LBA Technology with the folks at Voice of America it was possible to organize a visit to VOA site B where Eric, Olivia and Ramon were given a tour of the facilities by Macon Dail . The visitors were able to observe first hand the  250 kW and 500 kW short wave transmitters  that VOA uses to broadcast to the rest of the world using 39 shortwave antennas installed in a 2,800 acres field.
