... Kffc radar outage information update #2... repairs to begin
tomorrow...

April 28, 2017

The kffc WSR-88D Doppler radar operated by the NOAA National
Weather Service in Peachtree City, Georgia, will be down for up to
two weeks for the repair of a major mechanical component.

An engineering team from the radar operations center (roc) in
Norman, Oklahoma, determined that The Bull gear, the primary gear
for turning the radar antenna, has failed. This repair will
require 12,000 to 15,000 pounds of equipment and a six-person team
from the roc to restore the radar. At this time, the team
anticipates beginning the repair tomorrow, Saturday, April 29,
with the radar returning to service by Sunday, may 14. Service
restoration could be sooner if no problems are experienced during
the repair.

During the downtime, adjacent radars include National Weather
Service radars at: htx, jgx, gsp, and mxx and the faas Atlanta
tdwr, tatl. For direct access to any of these surrounding radar
sites, go to the following web page:

The Peachtree City WSR-88D is more than 20 years old and part of
a network of 159 operational radars. The radars are supported by
three federal agencies: NOAA National Weather Service, United
States Air Force, and the federal aviation administration. The
radar operations center provides lifecycle management and support
for all wsr-88ds.
