Behind the scenes

Some more recent photographs on the swap from the old Tait hardware to the new Yaesu DR-2XE.

And those from the initial installation all those years ago.

The Cabinet

The GB3OA cabinet incorporates a Tait T375 transmitter and T377 receiver at the top, an ICS Linker II logic board is located at the rear of one of the facia plates, and clearly seen at the bottom the Sinclair Q2330E diplexer six-filter set.

The aerial

Diamond X50 aerial is mounted clear of all surrounding buildings, although there is still a slight amount of shadow in some areas of Southport.
