Short Description PLUTO II is an Over The Horizon Radar located in the Sovereign Base Area just outside RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus. PLUTO II is very active in Europe.
I/Q Raw Recording
Audio Sample
PLUTO II is an Over The Horizon Radar located in the UK Sovereign Base Area just outside the RAF Akrotiri base in Cyprus. Uses FMCW (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave). PLUTO has been seen with sweeprates of 25 and 50 sweeps/sec even sometimes 12.5 sweeps/sec.
