West Takone radar after upgrade

The West Takone weather radar was replaced in February 2016 as part of the Bureau's Radar Sustainment Program. The scope of work included decommissioning the radar, replacing the radome ring to accommodate the new larger radome, and installing a new 1 degree C-band radar.

An official announcement from local member for Braddon, Brett Whiteley was issued on 6 April once the radar was in full operation and images were available from our website.
