Fig. 5


Left: image of a single LOFAR LBA dipole including the ground plane. The inset images show the molded cap containing the LNA electronics as well as the wire attachment points. Right: median averaged spectrum for all LBA dipoles in station CS003. The peak of the curve near 58 MHz is clearly visible as well as strong RFI below 30 MHz, partly because of ionospheric reflection of sub-horizon RFI back toward the ground, and above 80 MHz, due to the FM band.
