Antenna Maintenance

The first 3 antennas require major maintenance this summer. In particular, the protection of the receiver cabins must be replaced. The estimated down time is 3 weeks per antenna. During the corresponding 2 months (June and July), the interferometer will operate in 3 antenna mode, concentrating on non-mapping or backup projects.
