Maltese telecoms firm GO has updated the kit at its Maghtab site, by the sound mirror:
In comments, [Prime Minister] Dr Gonzi said the Maghtab headend site was symbolically important because of the sound mirror, a primitive radar built some 70 years ago to detect and amplify the sounds of air and sea vessels nearing Malta.
This is the only sound mirror built outside England but became outdated within three to seven years since being built because it was replaced by radars.
Dr Gonzi said that even nowadays, major investment in technology became outdated quickly and companies needed to continue investing consistently.
