SyncOptic unit installed
A while ago we took delivery of a SyncOptic repeater unit from ASTRON. A couple of weeks ago this was installed at KAIRA as part of the winter maintenance and upgrade expedition. And today, we have a photograph of the installed unit.
In the photograph, the small box on the shelf on the left is the GPS receiver. The larger box next to it with the matrix of BNC connectors is the rubidium atomic clock. The new SyncOptic unit is underneath (the unit marked LOFAR/ASTRON).
