This installation is primarily a windfinding radar. The coverage in weather watch mode is poor. Surrounded by mountains and hills in most directions, it provides coverage for the immediate area surrounding Hobart Airport, about 40km along the Coal River Valley to the northwest and to the southeast over Frederick Henry Bay to the Tasman Peninsula.
