The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) is set to build Very High Frequency (VHF) Radio Repeater in Mapun, Tawi-Tawi to enhance communication channels in the municipality and nearby coastal communities, such as Taganak Island.

On 23 June 2021, personnel of the Coast Guard Weapons, Communications, Electronics and Information Systems Command (CGWCEISC) in Southwestern Mindanao and Coast Guard Northern Tawi-Tawi inspected the 506-square-meter land area located at Barangay Tabulian that will be utilized for said infrastructure project.
