I was involved with the construction and commissioning of the second-generation One Centimetre Receiver Array (OCRA) receiver. This is an 8 beam receiver (to be upgraded to 16 beams later) that works at a frequency of 30 GHz (1cm wavelength). It was partially constructed prior to the start of my PhD; I’ve been actively involved with completing the receiver (I’ve lent a hand with screwing it all together, and the majority of the testing of it), and it’s now installed on the Torun telescope and in the process of being commissioned.
