LBA installation progress — 17-Jul-2012

Today's progress. This morning, we finished placing all the grids and hammering in the pegs. We then started working on the installation of the cables and aerials. The map here shows how far we've managed to get today.

LBA installation progress from 17-Jul-2012. The "light shaded" aerials are new.

During all of this, we were also working on the HBA commissioning with the ASTRON team. We now have working bandpasses on all HBA antennas. Overnight, we are running the first long-term accumulation of antenna cross-correlations (the so called ACC files) which we will use for further tests and station calibration.

Photographs to follow soon.
