Pictures from the raising of the new mast at Hessdalen AMS

We, Bjørn-Gitle Hauge, datastudent Jens Christian Skibakk and myself, Erling Strand, travelled to Hessdalen for installing the two-camera system, and a radar. We travelled from Sarpsborg, tuesday 12.June 2001, in the afternoon. 8 hours later, we arrived Bjørgåsen fjellstue. The work started on wednesday, and lasted until sunday afternoon, the 17.june. We did finish the mechanical work, but not the technical work. This will be finished later this summer.

The mast hast arrived Hessdalen
Wednesday morning, and just arrived to Hessdalen. The mast is still present on top of Bjørn-Gitle Hauges car, after 550 km drive. Now we must carry it (and much more) up to the station.
Graving for fundamentet til masta
The first thing to do was to find a location, and to dig a hole for the mast. Bjørn-Gitle Hauge is in action. It is wednesday.
Muring av fundamentet til masta
Now is the digging finished, and the plate for the mast is build. It is wednesday evening.
