Skybrokers installed a refurbished VertexRSI 7.2m antenna in Qaanaaq, the northernmost town in Greenland
This was the most challenging project ever done! An used and refurbished VertexRSI 7.2m antenna was prepared with extra de-icing elements for installation in harsh weather conditions in this Arctic environment. The city of Qaanaaq and surrounding settlements will have a better internet connection using this antenna that will be pointed at the Amazonas Nexus satellite at 61° West, operated by Hispasat satellite operator.
Skybrokers team installed, aligned and tested the antenna successfully in August/September 2021 for Tele Post Greenland. The installation was finished just before winter arrived! We did it ‘the Greenland way’, using the resources that were locally available. Please check out the amazing pictures that we made during the installation in Qaanaaq as well as the surrounding areas, the Ice Sheet and the Northernmost settlement Siorapaluk with the Verhoeff Glacier in Robertson Bay!
