With decent weather antiicapted, we had a large group of OMARC members on site to prepare for the "soft" opening of the Visitors Center on 1 April, 2015 at 2:00 PM. If you are in the area, please stop by!
There was plenty of cleaning, moving, and last minute detail work. One of the projects that was tackled was freeing the covers for the RF cable pathway. The temporary RF cables can bee seen on the ground.
OMARC installed innerduct for the small signal and control cables, and hangers for the feedlines that will be used for 432 EME. We are using LDF7-50A (1 5/8" Heliax ) cable
The MARS operating positions are being upgrade with a new desk-top console for the rack mount equipment, tone remotes for the VHF radios and commercial phone
