Wallops Island, VA (37.93 N, -75.47 E)

The SuperDARN radar at Wallops Island was the first to be constructed using the Twin-Terminated-Folded-Dipole (TTFD)Antenna design. This design is lighter and cheaper than the original log-periodic design. It saw first light in June 2005.

The radar is located on the grounds of the NASA Wallops Flight Facility (WFF). It was built and is operated as a joint project of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) supported by NSF and NASA/GSFC.

The orginal PI was Dr. Ray Greenwald. The PI-ship has since passed through Mike Ruohoniemi and Elsayed Talaat to the current PI, Ethan Miller.
