A really "Top Night" from Chris M1EEV who presented to us the current progress in Amateur Television, also assisted by John G7LLQ. Chris took us through the availability of current analogue TV up to the latest digital systems coming on line, and showed us many simple and low cost ways of getting "on the air".
It was indeed most pleasing to see that "Home Brew" is still very much alive, as you will see from the pictures below, which display many items made by Chris and John to the highest professional standards. When you are shown home made antennas which out perform their commercial rivals, you might be forgiven for thinking that these guys are in a league all their own .. and yet their practical and simplistic approach to a problem shows the benefits of working closely together and sharing thoughts and ideas to consistently achieve what many would consider to be the impossible. This, combined with their ability to enthuse and help newcomers to ATV is a great credit to them.
A really great night .. thanks Guys.
