The summer of 2007 is noteworthy for the CSU-CHILL Facility in that we are experiencing the culmination of years of work and planning on the new dual-offset feed antenna. Although this started as a colaboration with Vertex/RSI to develop a new 8.5m Gregorian antenna for the radar, it expanded in scope to build a new foundation and radome to house the system. The site wiring will also be extensively updated and upgrated to a more permanent installation.
- July 6, 2007 Pouring a new foundation for the pedestal and radome
- The new radome required a larger setback from the site boundaries. Consequently, the site was expanded to the east, and a new foundation was prepared just to the northeast of the previous radar location.
