The Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) is a low-frequency phased-array radio telescope being constructed in Western Australia by an international collaboration. At a point in the project that could be called the “end of the beginning”, a 32 tile prototype system is operational at the MRO site and the design of the 512T build-out is being finalised. I will discuss the development and performance of this system and some lessons learned that will be relevant to other sparse-array projects.
