The antennas are of various design and construction, and have a clear takeoff with sloping land to the sea in most directions apart from the Isle of Portlnd to the South, and the mainland to the North. The Chessil bank as well a the Fleet lagoon (Experimental area for the Barnes Wallace bouncing bomb) can be seen in the pictures.
The main transmitting hall is complemented with wireless sets from Japan, and the PA made in the US, but assembled in Wyke-Regis!
Aerials are copper, usually vertically orientated. Mine and the neighbours’ garden is also made fromm copper!
The wireless station is usually operated by Terry, however sometimes his siblings like to ‘swish’ the VFO,and smile when people ‘sound squeaky’
Terry has many hobbies from, Radio control glider flying, Paragliding, motorcycling and classic cars when he is home from his Offshore Oil and Gas exploits.
