EISCAT UHF

A couple of weeks ago, the KAIRA team was at the EISCAT radar site at Ramfjordmoen, near Tromsø, to carry out some observations. We planned to control KAIRA remotely and do the observations with EISCAT locally. It didn't quite work out that way, as an unexpected power failure required a "quick" return to the site for a reset, but otherwise all went okay.

The weather we had in Tromsø was lovely and we took some photographs to share. Today we are featuring the 32m UHF radar.
