The design is an anticlastic surface with a saddle shape form.
It has 6 different masts, each mast has two aditional cables for better installation.

Description of the environmental conditions
Guatemala is located in tropical Central America around 14 degrees northern latitude and one would expect the country to have a solidly tropical climate. That is not the case, however.
Large parts of Guatemala are very mountainous and climate depends much more on altitude than on latitude. While there are in fact areas with a tropical climate, there are others where nighttime temperatures can drop below freezing.
It has been mounted in Antigua Guatemala, Escuintla and in Guatemala´s Capital.
