Radars

Radars

In addition to operating as a passive receiver system, KAIRA is also capable of receiving signals from nearby scientific radars. This page describes the relevant parameters.

PLEASE NOTE that KAIRA is an independent facility. Having allocated time on KAIRA does not imply the reciprocal allocation on any of these other facilities.

 

EISCAT radar parameters

Because the KAIRA system is often used in conjunction with the EISCAT VHF radar at Ramfjordmoen, near Tromsø, the following information may also be useful.

VHF transmitter direction 313.95 degrees
VHF transmitter frequencies 222.8 – 225.4 MHz

Depending on the exact radar experiment used, this will also affect which subbands are required with KAIRA.
