IE613 joins regular LOFAR operations

Submitter: Aleksandar Shulevski
Description: With the successful construction and opening of the Irish LOFAR station at Birr Castle, IE613 has been added to the LOFAR system and participates in commissioning observations.

The image shows the correlated visibility amplitudes to IE613 (marked with a red arrow), along with all of the other LOFAR stations. A record number of 72 HBA antenna fields were correlated during the test run. The station location map shows the station with respect to the other stations comprising LOFAR. This brings the total number of stations to 51, and Ireland into the LOFAR family.

Pending calibration, the new station will be included in production observations.
