... Kvax radar outage...
... Kjax radar has been returned to service...

The kjax 88d Doppler radar is operational. Many thanks to the roc
technicians and local technicians.

Technicians are still repairing the department of defense kvax Moody
Doppler radar near Valdosta, which had motor and transmitter
problems. The new part needed is a klystron which is a type of
transmitter which strongly and coherently amplifies a reference
signal so its output can be precisely controlled in amplitude,
frequency and phase. This is a critical element for Doppler radar.
The Moody Doppler radar is likely be down through the end of the
month as this part is delivered and installed.

During the down time, adjacent National Weather Service Doppler
radars for weather coverage are: Jacksonville, Tallahassee, and
Macon/Warner Robbins radars.

This statement will be updated as new information is received on
radar status.
