its cheap and easy they said ……………………. uh huh ……………. latest snag on the build - got a small TFT screen - and lo its one of those that does not display unless its presented with a decent signal level - the rx being an RC832 ……………………


soo what to do ?? - buy a dvr and put in line ?? - more cost and a fair wait for it to come from china - or quicker from italy - but wow the postage is steep - or build some sort of video amp ?? - again fine but my eyesight is not up to much so it would have to be descrete components and on vero board - ............ looks for design ............ er ........................ help !!


and the joke is after all the expence and faffing around its not like i have anyone to talk TO - and before you say jump in your car and go up to a high spot - 1 - no car - 2 lugging the kit around on the back of a mobility scooter might just get plod asking a few questions - 3 it would take a few days to get anywhere worth going to ................


cheap and easy they said ............................ :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hi - to be fair the problem with modern "blue" screens has been well advertised and is prominent on the wiki page - https://wiki.batc.org.uk/5.6_GHz along with various solutions to get round it inlcuding using a USB receiver in to a PC or mobile phone which is mentioned on an earlier post on this forum.

And maybe the best way to get people to work is to encourage a couple of locals or the loacal radio club to get involved as happened at the Barrow in Furness club who made it a club project to get everyone involved.

thanks - i'll have a look at that squelch smurf thingy - as to clubs - you jest of course ?? - clubs around here are insular - and not interested in anything that a: takes effort - b: is above HF - c: has to do anything for anyone - disabled non drivers in particular - in fact, the chairperson of one - who I go out kite antenna flying with - has just resigned because he thinks so too - so if you have good inclusive clubs in your area or others into ATV - then consider yourself very lucky !!

I do not - so i have to sort any problems I encounter on my own - hence the sometimes dumb questions ........ :?
