We attempted to effect repairs on the KAIRA LBA, but we were short of some parts (cable connectors), which meant that some aerials needed to remain down. In order to ensure that the existing parts were secure, we used tape and rocks to prop up the posts and permit water drainage. It looks a little odd, but it works!

At present, we have 1 tile and 4 aerials out of action. We hope to repair the LBAs in July/August and we are waiting on a quote from ASTRON for a replacement tile.
