No other structure in the Chernobyl exclusion zone is as important as the installation of the Duga radar receiving antenna.
It consists of two individual systems, dozens of large antennas and sees itself in the closer perspective of the Chernobyl core plant.
The antenna is around 450 meters long and around 150 meters high, the right antenna around 250 meters wide and around 80 meters high. A narrow, kilometer-long concrete slab road leads through a dense coniferous forest directly to an abandoned military site.

The Duga radar (bow) emitted a shortwave signal that became NATO woodpecker (Specht) in NATO circles because it had the knocking of a woodpecker.
The three plants were managed from July 1979 to December 1986.

Certain of the high transmission power and a frequency of 10 Hz can be derived a range of approximately 15,000 km.
As part of the Controllable Missile Defense System, these systems were heard to detect missile launches in Europe and America. NATO calls for these Steal Yard.
In addition to the knowledge, which is not far from Chernobyl, there was also a system in the absence of Mykolaiv (Duga), which it claims to be dismantled, and a system to Komsomolsk am Amor (Duga 2), which was dismantled in 1989.

At the Duga-1 facility (often also incorrectly heard as Duga-3 in other ways) near Chernobyl are heard and senders heard about 50 kilometers.
The transmitter system consisted of around 50 large antennas with a height of up to 150 meters each.
The range was 9000 kilometers.
The reception system consists of two systems installed in the line. For the operation of the system and the evaluation of the data were looked after by experts who lived in a settlement of around 2000 people directly under the direction of the recipient.
After the Chernobyl disaster this will become this location.
The transmitter at Ljubetsch was dismantled and heard in Komsomolsk am Amor, the content system is in the Chernobyl exclusion zone and is still there.

In the middle of the forest, more than 60 steel giants belong to the sky, 150 meters high.
Strange metal buoys are part of every mast hat 44 arms. In between, feel close to sending wires.

The control center of the reception system is housed in a large, elongated building.

On the right side of the site is the associated barracks with residential relationships, kitchen, sports hall, theater, etc.
