RF-container

Last week, one of the scientists from SGO was en route to Tromsø and passed by the KAIRA site. Today, we feature a couple of photographs that he took of the RF-container. The first image shows the entire container with the mausoleum in front of it.

It is based on a regular international LOFAR RF-container, but with antennas for communications and, of course, the mausoleum for the delay excesses for the HBA array. Additionally, there is a metal cowling on the western side which protects the air-conditioning unit. This metal shield stops ice and snow from jamming up the air-conditioning unit during winter.
