PORTABLE ON 70C/M ATV
This is a picture of G3SXC/P sending ATV pictures live fully operational back in 1970's
This was an ATV DEMO at a DARWEN Gala.
The Scouts provided the tents.
Alan G3SXC built all the hardware and G3RFL built the solid state 500m/W 70c/m TX
Using very Expensive Semiconductors in those days.
The Vidicon Camera was home made and the monitor was a Rigonda TV modified.
We had a 10m Sound solid state home brew transceiver on 29.XXX MHz
The whole thing ran from a Hugh battery pack on Alans back pack
The ANT was a home brew vertical ground plane at the top of the picture.
The MAX range was only short just a few hundred metres but worked.
Note the Aircraft type headphones and microphone for the radio sound link.
There was not much SOLID STATE equipment or mobiler phones in those days.
HAPPY DAYS !
WHAT NEXT ?
