Walchensee Experiment

Measurement installation on Fahrenberg. The reflectometry antennae are mounted on a mast and oriented southwards towards Walchensee lake.

Fahrenberg is a mountain in the Bavarian Alps (47.61° N; 11.32° E). Its summit rises 1625 m above mean sea level. At the foot of the moutain lake Walchensee spreads on an area of about 16 km² with a lake level of about 800 m above mean sea level. The vicinity of lake and mountain offers an ideal location for Reflectometry experiments with the GORS receiver.
