In early 1948 equipment began to arrive from the U.S. It was delivered from the Manila docks and stored in the partially completed KZAS transmitter building. The challenge would be to complete both building and hook up the transmitter by June 8.

A rare view of a KZAS sign at the front gate of CRCM. Almost immediately after station inauguration in June of 1948, the call sign was changed to DZAS. There are in fact, few photographs or other printed materials preserved with the "KZAS" call sign. The "Far East" in white paint or chalk suggests an initial sign for delivery of goods. See also #106, 314, 432.

The pouring of foundations, like virtually everything else in the CRCM development, was done without the benefit of modern construction equipment such as concrete truck delivery or pumps. Note the use of wartime aircraft landing strip sections as reinforcement. To see how the sand and gravel were acquired, see #963 and 964.

Building materials were not readily available to FEBC immediately after World War II, since virtually all such resources were being used in the reconstruction of Manila. Here the FEBC "JeepDozer" pushes sand and gravel up onto the shore where it is shoveled by hand into trucks to take to CRCM. See also #962 and 964.

Richard Handlos (left) and a local worker look on as Richard Rowland tries his hand at soldering. The copper pipes were used for conducting high voltage electricity and/or water for cooling transmitter vacuum tubes. Hot water in the residences was not available for many decades, and then, only by means of small in-line electric heaters.
