SyncOptic repeater unit arrives

We've just received delivery of a new SyncOptic repeater unit from ASTRON. This is a LOFAR upgrade to improve timing on the stations and remove the occurrence of 5ns jumps which existed with the old clock distribution system.

This new unit is now at SGO and will be taken up to KAIRA for installation soon.
