Default Okay WTF is it?

This is sitting just inside Corsons Inlet.... Anyone care to guess?

Has a genset, and the radars havebeen spinning away for days now. One vertical, one horizonal... Needless to say, they are BIG arrays

I would go with Mini weather station, but I do not see wind speed indicators. Perhaps just a news stations radar setup?

That is a Bird radar system developed and built by D-tect...

They monitor bird migratory patterns, etc....sold to organizations that are interested in avoiding birds....like Airports, NASA, etc.

Yep, bird tracker is what it is.... NJ is trying to figure how to tax them for using our air space I'm sure.

I dont know where Corson's Inlet is but i would guess some sort of VTS (vessel tracking system) that the CG is doing. Thats a ship radar i dont know how well they pick up birds.

GUYS........QUICKLY PUT ON YOUR TIN-FOIL HATS!!!! Or otherwise by this time next week you'll be growing feathers and starting to eat like birds!

Yeah I was reading something about this the other week. Apparently the government will be trying some sort of experiment in selected areas. So the article goes, "if" the government is successful in changing people into birds the government will be GREATLY reducing our dependents on petroleum products and therefore save us from certain doom from Global Warming. SO PUT ON YOUR TIN-FOIL HATS!

The coat guard has put them on the barrier islands up here. They let the nature people use them to track birds, but they are really there to monitior activity off the coast.

Probably going to be banned from Corsons Inlet State Park now, they're just checking to see if the Piping Fugging Plovers are flying in the vicinity of surf casters and those parachute surfer things...

I wouldn't parade around in front of that thing if you have a pacemaker.

Corsons Inlet is about 20 miles north of Cape May NJ

High powered mortar launcher, useful for insurgents faced with a high wall around their enemy's country.

They are trying to get a good idea of how many stupid birds will be killed when they install the wind generators (really)
