Patch panel

In the RF-container, there is the patch panel which has the field cable connected in on the outside and on the inside, there are the patch cables going into the receiver units in the equipment racks. Now that the LBA cabling is finished, we've completed this outside patch work. However, still more cabling remains to be done (sorry!). These photographs show the current situation:

The inside of the patch panel, showing the F-type connectors. There is one pair per antenna. The orange connectors are the X-polarisation and the black are for the Y-polarisation. (Photo: D. McKay-Bukowski)

A look at the patch panel. The lower section has the completed HBA patching. There is then a single pair left as a spare and, starting with #47, there is the first of the LBA patch cables. These will be filled in over the next few days. (Photo: D. McKay-Bukowski)
