The key factor is that the radar’s antenna is to be installed in an (5) area of a few square kilometres far from highrises, (6) at an altitude. The radar would also need to be (7) near the coast as it would be used to (8) high-intensity storms or cyclones. MHCC has hinted it is willing to (9) clearance for the Colaba site, but only after (10) the location. It was after scouting for locations across the city that the office proposed to locate the radar near the observatory. But the problem of finding a suitable site within area still remains. The area is very congested. We will have to locate a site not only from the heritage point of view but also the radar needs to be at a height which is higher than all the buildings in the area. The naval residential buildings which are in the area are 13-14 storeys high. If at all it is to be set up at Colaba then it must be above the existing structures so that signals reaching the antenna are not blocked.
