The Rainbow radar is currently undergoing an evaluation period of twelve months to confirm its coverage is unhindered in all directions. The location is expected to provide good radar coverage with minimal impact on the radar beam from any obstructions and provide a full 360 degree view. This will be confirmed after the evaluation period. At the end of the 12 month period these notes will be updated.
