The radar appears uses a linear array of crossed dipoles feeding a cylindrical reflector. Not sure if this is a single sight with the antenna being used for transmitting and receiving or if there are separate sites for transmitting and receiving as was done for the U.S. Navy Space Surveillance System at Lake Kickapoo and other sites. The antenna reflector appears to be fixed in one plane. It would be interesting to see if lunar echoes could be heard when the moon passes through the beam or fan pattern.
