APERTIF-6 hardware in place

Submitter: R.H. van den Brink
Description: In this last week of the year 2015 we managed to complete APERTIF-6 hardware and most of firmware and software. All hardware is installed at RT2,4,5,8,9 and A for APERTIF-6.

This is a big step into further commissioning! A very nice milestone the APERTIF team accomplished together.

We are looking forward to finish APERTIF-12 in 2016.

*APERTIF-6 is the first part of the APERTIF project which is divided into two delivery phases. In the first phase (APERTIF-6) six dishes are implemented with the single polarized version of the APERTIF system. In the second phase (APERTIF-12) another six dished will be implemented with the APERTIF system, and all twelve dishes are upgraded to a dual polarized system.
