Duga-3 Radar installion photos - Chernobyl

Recommended Posts

Duga-3, or as it is known in other circles as "Chernobyl 2" is a Soviet Over the Horizon radar system. 

 

This station is still located within the 10KM exclusion zone around the Chernobyl NPP area. Standing at 150 meters tall and with a length of 800 meters, you would think this is visible from miles around, but its not!! Was originally listed on maps as a children's summer camp site,many people never knew it was here, until after the reactor explosion.

 

This site is still well guarded for some reason. Don't know why, as they isn't anything there at all. The Russians did a very good job at taking all the important parts with them when they withdraw from here, and its only the newly formed (at the time) Ukrainian Government that stopped them from pulling it down and destroying it, and that's only due to the amount of Radiation that would of been disturbed and pushed back into the stratosphere and spread around that part of the world.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duga_radar

 

 

Duga (RussianДуга) was a Soviet over-the-horizon (OTH) radar system used as part of the Soviet ABM early-warning network. The system operated from July 1976 to December 1989. Two operational Duga radars were deployed, one near Chernobyl and Chernihiv in what was then called the Ukrainian SSR (present-day Ukraine), the other in eastern Siberia.

The Duga systems were extremely powerful, over 10 MW in some cases, and broadcast in the shortwave radio bands. They appeared without warning, sounding like a sharp, repetitive tapping noise at 10 Hz,[1] which led to it being nicknamed by shortwave listeners the Russian Woodpecker. The random frequency hops disrupted legitimate broadcasts, amateur radio operations, oceanic commercial aviation communications, utility transmissions, and resulted in thousands of complaints by many countries worldwide. The signal became such a nuisance that some receivers such as amateur radios and televisions actually began including 'Woodpecker Blankers' in their circuit designs in an effort to filter out the interference.
