Setting up Wi-Fi, on the top of the world
A picture towards one of our potential trial sites. This picture was taken at over 2660 meters above sea level.
The VISTA telescope as seen from the location of the antenna. Paranal used a similar telescope to communicate with VISTA before they installed the cables.
The hill of the Paranal telescope is one of the highest in the area, looking down on the Atacama is breath-taking.
The winds can get very high at this altitude so we had to make sure to secure the antenna and stand down.
The finished antenna installation
One side of the link is ready, the second antenna will be set up the field camp.
Complete installation, fully wind-proofed.
