X-band weather radar installation

For information of all the Tähtelä society, residents and visitors:

This week, SGO will install a 10 GHz experimental weather radar. Installation location is next to the meteor radar, i.e. on the left-hand-side of the road, when coming to Tähtelä. A strictly no-access-zone will be marked clearly. Access is strictly forbidden due to microwave radiation hazard! Notice especially: During experiments, you are not allowed to be near by the back-side of the transmitter! The purpose of the radar installation is the development of radar transmission coding and analysis methods. The installation is temporary. The objective is to install the radar to the upper structures of the 32-metre EISCAT antenna.
