The Ozone Hut on the move. Previously the Dobson Ozone Spectrophotometer had been used through a hatch in the roof of the main hut. This became increasingly difficult as the hut was buried. The hut on sledges came with the first FIDS team as a numbered DIY kit and proved to be very successful.

This hut was, from 1971, used to house the VLF receiving equipment, after a new hut had been supplied for the ozone spectro-photometer. It was destroyed by fire in 1976. See pictures. -- Ed.

These pictures are replacements for the original ones mentioned in Zfids Newsletter No. 7, which had an unusual texture due to having been photographed from a projection screen.
