I have received a couple of e-mail from eHAM members asking what was going on at the N2MO at InfoAge.  Here's the short list:

  • Work continues on the RF cabling and upgrades to the antenna systems.
  • The dry air compressor for the larger feed lines is ready for use, along with the regulators and alarming for the backup nitrogen cylinders
  • The big news is the TLM-18 antenna is now moving under computer control power in azimuth and elevation.  
  • Additional servers have been racked to support the project.
  • Modeling and design of new feed horns continue.
  • Rack consoles and desks were acquired from the former AT&T Hawley Earth Station.

This photo shows the dish pointed west at about 45° Elevation.  The N2MO station building is in the background:
