HBA progress - 27 tiles installed

Here is the updated completion map for the LOFAR-Chilbolton HBA antenna installation. Yesterday's progress is marked in orange.

-- 13 tiles were installed on Friday 2nd (red)
-- 14 tiles were installed on Monday 5th (orange)

Some explanation of the strange installation pattern might be helpful. Due to connection limitations, tiles must be installed from northeast to southwest down each of the columns. The choice of columns has been dictated by ongoing work on the cables.

Although there is a good deal of colour on the map now, there is still a long way to go.
