Project KAIRA - LOFAR in Finland

Featured today on the ASTRON image of the day are HBA tiles undergoing winter testing in Finland (Image reproduced below).

At LOFAR-UK we're delighted to welcome our Finnish friends to the International LOFAR Telescope. You can see details of the Project KAIRA (the Finnish LOFAR work) on their website and blog (both in English). As Chilbolton moves into an operational phase, and the big task of installation and commissioning has lessened, our LOFAR-UK Chilbolton Site Manager is now spending some of his time in Finland working on project KAIRA, so I think we can expect lots of updates on the progress on their blog.
