Yesterday morning the inverter, that converts the battery power (12 volts DC) to 220 volts AC on the broadcast vehicle (the ‘Tank’), began to smoke … usually a very bad sign.
We immediately tracked a new one down in Nelspruit and WE went to collect it. Late last night the team installed the new one only to discover that it made ‘strange’ sounds. So I have made the decision to cancel today’s drives (sorry) and I will leave Johannesburg tomorrow morning and get to Djuma in the afternoon. Immediately we will try and figure out what is going on and fix the problem, hopefully in time to have a drive on Sunday morning … our birthday!!
Sorry about these cancelled drives, but WE just can’t afford to blow up another inverter, I hope that you understand.
