AL UDEID AIR BASE, Qatar --
Airmen from the 379th Expeditionary Communications Squadron and 379th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron work together to take down several inactive microwave dish transmitters from a radio tower Oct. 8, here.
The transmitters were used to provide internet and phone communication to both the base and Camp As Sayliyah. Base infrastructure improvements rendered the transmitters unnecessary, but they still posed a potential structural threat to the radio tower due to their significant weight.
