New Antenna at CHILL (Image 1)

July 7, 2010
New Antenna at CHILL (Image 1) Inside the radome is a new antenna, 9-meters in diameter, installed on an upgraded pedestal to allow rapid scan vertically and horizontally. The facility has VCHILL, virtual CHILL capability, so that it can be accessed from anywhere. This capability has received excellent feedback from professors at other universities who teach radar meteorology. The size of the facility can be seen by comparing it to the person standing in front of the pedestal in the picture. The CHILL radar facility is a National Science Foundation (NSF) research facility supported by the NSF's Division of Atmospheric Research and Colorado State University. CHILL is the nation's premier research radar. It is located in a field outside of Greeley, Colo. For more information about the installation of the new antenna, see the Colorado State University news release, "Colorado State University Hosts One of the World's Most Advanced Weather Radars."
