Have a very log periodic christmas!


An X-polarized X-mas tree of the future.
With the holidays approaching, the folks at MIT Haystack decided to decorate. This year the Christmas tree is a bit more special than usual. This one can sense radio waves as it doubles as a prototype antenna for SKA. The antenna is developed by Cambridge University for the SKA project and was just recently set up at MIT Haystack so that it can be tested with future receivers developed in the RAPID project.  On the background you can also see the steerable and zenith pointing MIT Haystack ISR antennas.
