Site arrivals

Following on from the previous post, here are a couple of photographs of the site as seen on arrival. The gentle slope from the main road leads down to the area where the so-called "carpark" is. This is actually the area that is being proposed for a compact low-band array (LBA).

The driveway onto the site.

View of the HBA on arrival... breath-taking!

I know that the Irish are going to put up a stiff fight for the most picturesque LOFAR site, but nothing can beat the Arctic skys, snow-swept mountains and stunning illumination of the KAIRA station.
