MJ1 - Middle Fork John Day Array

The Middle Fork John Day Array, owned and operated by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, is installed on the Middle Fork John Day River, near the current confluence with Mosquito Creek on Malheur National Forest Service Land. The array is powered by solar power and includes a remotely accessible satellite modem for data downloads and control, via land line. The site is operated year round, except when environmental conditions preclude sufficient charging to power system. The system runs six antennas (two arrays with three antennas each) at all times, except when low flows or ice preclude water flow over some antennas. Except at extremely high flows, the entire river bed is monitored by the antenna arrays.
