I know the unit was working and its owner says he used to hear several local ATV repeaters, but I'm not sure which ones are still on, or even if they still use the same output frequencies that they used to do...
Can anyone help please?
Thanks - Dave (G0DJA)
Thanks for the reply. Yes, 90W from Barlborough will definitely be overkill. HI
Since posting that message I've managed to get pictures from M0MDY in Sheffield as well as from VL in Lincoln, but always glad to get pictures from anyone at the moment...
As well as the W&D unit on loan, I've ordered a 23cm TX/RX set of boards and controller, together with the 18 Watt PA as well, so I'm hoping to be in a position to TX ATV soon. Someone on the GB3KM Ustream put me onto a link to an eBay deal for a video camera for £10 (inc. P&P) which has now given me a better picture than my tatty old Webcam (the difference, even though similar in size, seems great between the webcam and the video camera) plus the video cam has a mic input as well, which is a bonus over the fact that the webcam is USB and this video cam has 'proper' video and sound outputs... HI.
Looking at the output through a normal AV input on a SCART socket I can see the difference between USB cam and the new camera. Although it may not be full "BBC" quality, I can see a great deal more detail on the video cam over the web cam.
Now all I need is the COMTEK TX board
