Great news! With the latest trip to the site this week (Oct. 26th) the electronics at the Blackstone site are fully functioning! Along with the restoration of the internet connection, normal operations have resumed for this site as it was before the Univ. of Leicester electronics were packed up and shipped out of the country this past July.

A few changes to the new electronics can be observed on the Real-Time Data display, found in the left bar of the website. Of these changes, the radar's boresite is now at -40 degrees, the beam separation is 3.24 degrees, and the radar is now running with 24 beams.

SuperDARN radar operator Mark Garrett will be graduating from Fort Hays State University this coming weekend (May 14th).

Congratulations go to Mark Garrett on his graduation in the fields of physics and computer science. Mark has been our local student contact at the Fort Hays radar site and an invaluable resource for us to draw upon for coordination from the very start of the MSI radar build in the summer of 2009. After FHSU, Mark is planning on attending the University of Houston for a master's degree in computer engineering.

MSI SuperDARN wishes Mark the best of luck in his future studies!
