Site Preparation, June 1, 2007


The summer of 2007 is noteworthy for the CSU-CHILL Facility in that we are experiencing the culmination of years of work and planning for 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 larger radome to house the system. The site wiring will also be extensively updated and upgraded to provide a more permanent installation.
