Sunlit Hamperokken

It is Friday again, and we have a nice photograph to share with you today, submitted by one of our colleagues from the EISCAT facility, just up the road at Romfjordmoen, near Tromsø.

The image shows the striking peak of 'Hamperokken' lit by the waning sun at 3.00 pm, Thursday 13 February, with some of the HF antennas of the ionospheric heating facility at Ramfjordmoen in the foreground. Taken while Mike Rietveld was digging about 1.5m into the crusty snow to fix some faulty coaxial cable feed lines in preparation for some Heating campaigns in the coming weeks. The unusually large snowfall and subsequent weather in November has caused considerable damage to the coaxial lines.

Thanks Mike for sharing this with us!

Have a good weekend, everyone.
