Later, I added four more pages, showing the PC boards mounted in their enclosures... they are also linked sequentially, ( 8 pages, total ) to minimise download time.
RCA phono plugs / jacks were used for the eight antennas. Antenna elements are 3/32 inch braizing rod. Ground plane is .062 aluminum, 3 X 3 feet. Tennis balls provide mounting cushions... they were pierced through-and-through with a drill, then anchored to the struts with tie wraps.
Antenna circle radius is 1/2 foot. Small holes are visible for the "original" antenna circle. ( radius = 1 foot ) The radius was reduced to test feasability of using a smaller ground plane, in future units. ( seems to work fine )
