Antenna array assembled

The antenna array, which will be placed at the top of the tower, has now been completely assembled. The array was designed to withstand the extreme environmental conditions of a Swedish winter. The metallic antenna elements are covered by a weather-resistant radome which will avoid rain from shorting out the elements and rendering measurements useless. The metallic array frame is very strong and heavy, which will minimize vibrations due to strong winds.

Each antenna is fixed to the frame with no less than six M8 bolts. The connector in the middle is where the feeder cables wil be attached. Image credits: Mast- och tornunderhåll (
