Halley Bay - 1965

The Met Office

The met office, 1964 hut
The met office in the 1964 hut, photographed in 1965, showing the instrument rack with the Cintel equipment. Left to right, John Duff and Chris Miller. Sonde cans visible on the shelves at top left. The table just visible at the bottom right is where the balloon track was plotted from the radar data. The black unit in the rack, behind Chris's head, is the old equipment for "beating" the sonde signals by hand. For a while it was used occasionally when the Cintel broke down.
