By the evening of Thursday 15th July 2010, pretty much all of the electronics and cabling in the RF-container had been completed. Within the space of a few days, it had gone from an empty shell, through a period of seemingly chaotic installation to a completed and ordered system. It was a rapid and stunning transfer and our thanks goes to the ASTRON and Excel Assemblies team for their work.
Caption 1 : Midway through the work. Here the signal cables from both the LBA and HBA patch panels have been fitted, while the data network infrastructure is just being started.
Caption 2 : The view at the end of the week, with all cables complete and the floor panels back down. A very professional finish!
Caption 3 : And finally, this tiny little label appeared on the inside of the RF-cabin on the final day. Another milestone for UK608.
