Radio link between IRAM Granada and the Observatory

The old 64 KBit/sec radio link was replaced by a new link with 2 MBit/sec data transfer rate (faster by a factor of 32). The new system has been in operation for one year now and failed only once, when the antenna on top of the Observatory building filled up with snow during very bad weather.
