Drs. Simon Shepherd (Dartmouth College) and Raymond Greenwald (Virginia Tech) are making a visit to the island of Graciosa in the Azores to advance the plan for building the fourth and final pair of SuperDARN MSI radars. They are meeting with the mayor of Santa Cruz Da Graciosa, Sen. José Ramos Aguiar, and local contractors. Simon reports:
Feb 2: 'We had a very pleasant ceremony this morning at the future site of the Graciosa SuperDARN radars. It is perhaps one of the most spectacular sites we have built radars. Brief presentations were given by Luis Santos (Direcção Regional da Ciência, Tecnologia e Comunicações) and myself before signing the lease. A final presentation was given by the Secretary of the President of the Azores. The ceremony was attended by many citizens including the mayor of Santa Cruz Da Graciosa and several of the press.'

SuperDARN radars in the Azores will extend the coverage provided by the mid-latitude MSI radar chain across the Atlantic and into the European sector. Builds have been completed in Kansas (2009), Oregon (2010) and Alaska (2012).
The MSI team acknowledges the generous assistance provided by the Regional Government of the Azores (RGA), in particular the involvement of Mr. Luis Santos. The team also thanks Mr. Rafael A. Perez, Principal Officer to the Azores (Consulate of the United States) for coordinating activities and providing invaluable guidance.

Tuesday, Sep 11: Bill reports that Adak is on the air! In his words: 'I am pleased to announce that we had "first light" on both halves of the Adak system this afternoon. We brought up Adak West at about 0200 UT today and are receiving great data. I want to thank all of the MSI partners for their contributions to making this build a success. All went smoothly and we had a great time…no seriously despite horizontal rain for a good part of the time we had fun.'
Congratulations to Bill and the entire MSI build team!
