“Chornobyl – 2” Part II
Station of back-inclined sounding of the ionosphere (BIS or "Circle")
OTH-Radar "Chornobyl - 2".
"Circle" is an auxiliary system for OTH-Radar. It looks like two circles with diameter of 300 meters each, which consists from 240 metres aerials (120 by each circle).
"Circle" is an auxiliary system for OTH-Radar. It looks like two circles with diameter of 300 meters each, which consists from 240 metres antennas (120 by each circle). In the circle centre there is a low one-storeyed building with reception equipment, on a building roof there is a central antenna. This was a unique target designator for "large" antennas of OTH-Radar... But as far as I know, the system was never used for this intended purpose, but on the other hand it was used in various experiments of passive radar in the short-wave range. All those who are interested, can try to look for information on a so-called theme "Tourmaline". At one time "Circle" become interested by ubiquitous KGB (of course! Such unique direction-finder stands idle :). But the military men were greedy and have not given "Circle" :)
1. Entrance on a position and a check point.
2, 3. Electropanel board and cooling tower of cooling systems.
4. Ecologist Sergey Paskevich near one of the dismantled antenna.
With Station BIS that’s all for a while. We come back to Chernobyl to visit "Radar Station near of Chornobyl"
