Out with the Old in with the New

Saying hello to something new means saying good-bye to something old and loved. After 40 years of loyal service, our workhorse -the one and only TG1- had to be retired and has now been replaced with a new and modern antenna to serve our customers from Tromsø Ground Station

For some months the foundation stood strangely empty until a few weeks ago when a skilled team helped by 2 cranes managed to erect a new and modern antenna on the old fundament -in record time.

In darkness and between heavy snow showers, the mirror was cleared of snow, hoisted and fixed in place in just the same time it takes to cross-country ski the track around the ground station.  The new 9 meter antenna will soon be operational and integrated into the KSAT global ground network, serving our customers for the next 40 years.
