We now have a finished field of LBA antennas and the station is already complete. Leif will doubtless update with the facts and figures. In the meantime, this is a picture I took yesterday afternoon of the new LBA field in the afternoon sunshine under a clear blue sky. The new header picture shows both the LBA and HBA arrays.
Next we have to make sure that everything is working. A team from ASTRON i the Netherlands will visit sometime after mid-August to verify the installation. That’s when we’ll get our ‘first light’: an image of whole northern sky made from cross-correlation signals from all the antennas.
