    I feel like I am repeating myself - "Now is the time to once again descend into a Swedish rock shelters/caverns" :p:

    Along the east coast of Sweden, there was previously a long line (I have somewhere read 30 pcs) plants with coastal surveillance radar (KSRR) like this. Here is a PS 239 is an S-band radar (3000 MHz) with a pulse power of about 500 kw. The antenna rotates normally about 8 revolutions/minute. The range was 320 km.

    It was important for both the Swedish Navy and Air Force to get a few minutes warning before that the Soviet Union begun its attempts invade Sweden... :eek:

    This facility was originally commissioned in 1953 and was one of the southeast Sweden's key radar facilities. Like so much else in Sweden during the Cold War, this plant was very secret, and the plant was in operation until 1992, and it seems like it will be the only facility of this type to be preserved for posterity.
