Firmware update of all LOFAR receiver units

Submitter: Andre Gunst, Gijs Schoonderbeek, Menno Norden and Marchel Gerbers
Description: LOFAR is some times named a software telescope. Most software of LOFAR can be remote updated. This means that operators and/or designers can change the software without travelling to the core in Exloo. Some parts of embedded software can only be updated on site. At the end of the development of the receiver board some minor changes are made in the software. Some colleagues travelled to Exloo with program equipment and updated the software of the receiver boards. As can be seen on the photo they are very inventive to tackle the extreme weather and road conditions in Exloo.
