The receiving antenna of Cape Matxitxako was successfully repaired last week. The antenna began to fail on March 16 (bottom image). The prompt intervention of Qualitas, which performs its maintenance for the Directorate of Emergency and Meteorology of the Basque Government (DAEM), allowed it to return to normal operation a few days later (top image).

The radar provides, in real time, hourly maps of surface current of great interest for the monitoring of coastal transport (for more information click here: https://www.euskoos.eus/en/basque-ocean-meteorological-network/high-frequency-coastal-radars/).
