Brief description The Cape Spencer (CSP) HF ocean radar site (35.294 S, 136.879 E) is one of two HF ocean radars covering the area between Eyre Peninsula and Kangaroo Island. The other HF ocean radar station is at Cape Wiles. The HF ocean radar coverage is from the coast to beyond the edge of the continental shelf. The CSP HF ocean radar is a WERA phased array system with a 16-element receive array. This radar operates at a frequency of 8.512 MHz, with a bandwidth of 33 KHz, a maximum range of 200 Km and a range resolution of 4.5 Km. Azimuthally the radar covers a sweep 60 deg either side of a bore sight direction of 237 deg true east of north (approximately north by north-west). Within the HF radar coverage area surface current radials are measured. Data are also collected from which wind directions and significant wave height can be calculated.

Lineage Maintenance and Update Frequency: asNeeded

Lineage Statement: This station was (mostly) offline from November 2020, and should resume from June 2023.
