Replacement of the Britt Weather Radar

The purpose of the project is to decommission the existing Britt Weather Radar, located in Ontario, and install a new weather radar system in its place. The new Britt radar will continue to provide   coverage for Northern Ontario and will consist of a 28 m open lattice steel tower with an 11.8 m diameter radome at the top (sphere covering the antenna) for a total height of approximately 41 m including lightning protection rods. The new radar will operate at frequency of 2845MHz.

 

The radar is located at 8 Station Road, Britt, Ontario, P0G 1A0, a property owned by ECCC. The geographic coordinates of the proposed radar site are 45.793274° N, -80.533911° W.
