In the shadow of the dish
by Margaret McFee (CASS)
The Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) consist of six 22-m dishes, opeating from 1 to 105 GHz. Five dishes can be moved along the east-west railway track as well as the short north-south spur. The 450th ATCA re-configuration happened on the 6th of March 2017. This photo shows the team involved (John Wilson, Bruce Tough, James Cole, Mikey George, Jordan Rex, Graeme Sunderland, Jock McFee, Mike Hill & Tim Wilson) standing in the shadow of one of the ATCA dishes. A number of staff enjoyed a ride on the antenna, including Chris Wilson and new starter Jane Trindall.
