After the January 11, 2010 VLA correlator shut-down this page will not be maintained any further. For the latest status of antenna upgrades we refer to the new EVLA pages, in particular the new version of this page, to which you will be redirected in 10 seconds.

Status of Antenna Retrofitting

Previous revisions of this document can be accessed via the EVLA Returns Archive.

The following table lists retrofitted EVLA antennas currently in the array, and the availability of their receivers. Antennas in red are not taking part in regular observing yet, but will be included shortly. Numbers in parentheses indicate antennas that temporarily have been taken out of the array because of hardware restrictions; once the WIDAR correlator is deployed these antennas will take part in the array again. More detailed information on all antennas and their locations can be found here.
