radars are all removed and sent away for storage as they seize up very quickly without use and are still security sensitive, ollies and tynes wont go just yet as the olly and tyne pool are abound with spares they will be removed and go back to rollys royce for refurbishment and possible re use with other navies still using them

The 1022 is not such an issue as they are old kit now and probably were rendered unusuable by DRSO. All other radar was indeed removed from the ships disposed of.
