Other Important Projects

6.1.Antennas Project in Bolivia

Red ADvenir wants to increase its coverage in Bolivia, where there is a great demand to

install more antennas. Currently, we have installed antennas in Santa Cruz, Cochabamba, La Paz, El

Alto, Sucre and Tarija, and also in a few smaller cities. We would like to improve the signal in great

cities (by installing antennas with more power), and introduce our signal to new regions (by

installing new antennas).

The costs of the antennas are in proportion to the size of the cities and the population to be

reached. For example, cities like La Paz demand antennas with more power, which are more costly

(an average of US$19,000), while smaller cities may be covered with smaller antennas (their cost

would be around US$9,000). Another significant aspect to consider is the acquisition of a license to

broadcast in the different regions. It is our desire to introduce or improve our signal to cities like

Cochabamba, La Paz/El Alto, Sucre, Tarija, Santa Cruz, Oruro, Chuquisaca, Potosí, and Beni. The

following graph shows the estimated costs for this project (representing expansion of existing

signals and introduction of the signal in new locations).

6.2.Expansion in Other Countries.

In this section we focus on the Spanish TV Channel, the Channels in the other languages are

following the same expansion pattern.

In expanding our signal to other countries, we have received much assistance from viewers,

the Adventist church organization (Conference, Union and Division levels), and cable companies or

private air station operators. We plan to design a more aggressive expansion strategy, which will

include the following steps:

1) Create a database of viewers by regions/countries. Partial information will be obtained from

TV programming and the Internet, where viewers can indicate if they receive the signal in

their area.

2) Work with Seventh-day Adventist Churches and organizations to devise expansion plans and

TV programs targeting their needs (i.e. local/regional evangelistic campaigns).

3) Contact cable companies and air station operators in view of further expansion.

4) Initiate promotional tours to establish personal contact with international networks.

6.3.Cooperation with other Spanish Speaking Networks.

We gladly cooperate with other Spanish speaking networks. We have offered 3ABN Latino

the use of our towers free of charge for the installation of their transmitters.

It is part of our philosophy to support and cooperate with other Seventh-day Adventist

networks in the region. This includes Networks administered that are church administered (i.e.

76

Nuevo Tiempo) and also self-supporting ministries to the church (i.e. 3ABN Latino).
