Test LBA system at Pittiövaara

The original plan was to build 96 LBA aerials at KAIRA. That plan was altered because of ground stability considerations, limited signal processing and some other interesting ideas. So, although we've installed 48 aerials at KAIRA, the remainder will be used for other tests and experiments.

At the moment, we've installed four of these aerials at Pittiövaara, a small field station not far from the main institute at Sodankylä. These are being used to test a new digital signal processing concept being developed by SGO.

Of course, at KAIRA, being much further into the Arctic you would never get trees like this!
