Hello friends far and near, and especially near: we have an update on the generators at the Westford Radio Telescope.
The Westford facilities crew, including site manager Mike Poirier, worked tirelessly (and at 6-foot spacing!) (and on weekends!) to first measure the noise in surrounding areas, install a test setup, re-measure local noise, then order materials and install a longer-term solution to reduce the level of generator sound.
The photo here shows the not-yet-complete state of the noise mitigation solution—it has already proven effective and has been receiving good reviews.
Thanks again to all around us for your help and patience! The crews will be focused on restoring the main electrical power from here on out.
Glad to once again enjoy some peace and quiet! 😄
Nice job to everyone who worked on this fix—thank you!
