Winter in EISCAT Land

This morning the southernmost EISCAT site at Sodankylä awoke to a beautiful winter scene: overnight fell about 5 cm of wet snow. Perfect for making a snowman, but not ideal for working outside. Hopefully the winter weather will not cause problems to next week's (Tuesday, 23rd October 2012) replacement of the small mirror in the UHF antenna by a dipole ring feed, which will complete the conversion of the UHF remote antennae to VHF frequency.
