Replacement of the Carvel Weather Radar

The purpose of the project is to decommission the existing Carvel Weather Radar, located in Alberta, and install a new weather radar system in its place. The new Carvel radar will continue to provide coverage for the Edmonton area and will consist of a 22 m open lattice steel tower with an 11.8 m diameter radome at the top (sphere covering the antenna) for a total height of approximately 35 m including lightning protection rods. The new radar will operate at frequency of 2835MHz.

 

The radar is located at 1529 Parkland Hwy, Carvel, Alberta, T0E 0H0, a property owned by ECCC. The geographic coordinates of the proposed radar site are 53.560519°, -114.144811°.
