These Pictures are of the initial stages of the mount of the antenna being installed.
In the picture above, the line can be seen where the conduit was laid which holds
the cables. These were taken in the early spring of 2001.
The picture above shows the antenna, with mount and dish, as of 6/14/01. The feedhorn
and LNA had yet to be installed and the cables had still not been connected.
The nearly completed antenna is shown above, with dual axis drive motors and the
nose cone covering the feed horn with pre-amplifier attached. A closer view of the
drive motors is shown below: The image on the right shows the work done by our welder
to adapt the new drives to the 3-meter dish.
