Lightning strikes LWA-1 - August 22, 2015

The receiver box of one of the dipole antennas exploded and about 25 percent of the FEEs in the array were damaged, significantly reducing the sensitivity of the LWA1 for a month. About half the dipoles were repaired in October and full sensitivity was restored in December; otherwise we were fortunate that no major damage was done inside the electronics shelter.
