LocationWoomera Airport Radar TypeWF 100 C Band Typical Availability24 hours
The Woomera radar is located at the Meteorological Office which is 6 km north of the township of Woomera. The surrounding terrain is generally flat and featureless. The Flinders Ranges rise about 130 km to the east, and the northern extremity of Spencer Gulf lies 170 km to the southeast. The radar antenna elevation is 170 metres above sea level. The radar has good coverage in all directions up to a range of about 250 km. "False echoes" or Anomalous Propagation (AP) can occur on limited occasions overnight when a radiation inversion becomes established. AP can be identified by its static appearance and can normally be distinguished from "real" echoes which exhibit some movement.
