LBA tests

During the winter of 2011-2012, we set up three test platforms for the LBA aerials. These were located on the tundra to the north west of the HBA.

Although superficially they look okay, the sparse array, combined with the reduced DSP set and the non-uniform ground plane, make this location for deployment not suitable. However, it was good to see that the antennas themselves had held up okay during the snowy months.
