Ground station antenna assembly starts

The project kicked off for the fall semester on 24 August 2020. Already a few days later students started working on assembling and testing the antenna system. This work is carried out in the T2 experiment hall in the Alfvén laboratory. The antenna lattice tower has been mounted on  a movable concrete block in order to make a test assembly of the entire system before moving it to the roof of the building. Assembly of the VHF transmit antenna has already been completed and the antenna is now temporariliy stored hanging from the “balcony” in the T3 experiment hall.
