Looking for an earth connection …

There is almost no soil on the cliffs of Qaqqaliaq so the earth/ground connection has to be made by running a wire from the equipment up at the lighthouse all the way down the cliffs and into the sea. We are lucky to find the remains of the old ground cable under the snow on the cliffs and attach an extension to it.

Now we are ready to perform a tap test again using the 2 extension cables that we already know they were working. Fingers crossed and Yes! Both extension cables are functioning good and no radio signal is interfering the recording system.
