The #EISCAT facility in #Ramfjordmoen, near Tromsø, Norway is the heart in EISCAT’s mainland system. The transmissions that we receive in both Kiruna, Sweden and Sodankylä, Finland comes form here. The site consists of one parabolic steerable antenna, the rectangular VHF antenna, the Heating Facility, several buildings with rooms for researchers and visitors and the newly built EISCAT3D test site.
