KAIRA makes VHF bistatic!

Fantastic news from the Kilpisjärvi Atmospheric Imaging Receiver Array: after first radar light was received last week, bistatic observations have now been made simultaneously along the VHF transmitter beam, which instantly becomes one dimension better than the single point ("common volume") intersection of any UHF remote site with the UHF transmitter.

For more details, please refer to the blog post about Lag-Profile Inversion of the Finnish KAIRA Station. Our colleagues of the Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory (SGO) established KAIRA for EISCAT_3D prototyping work, which is off to a great start after this initial work.
