2E0MRS Welcome to my Page                                    ( Show Dates at bottom of Page )

 

Wishing All that visit my page A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

 

Well here Goes a little about who i am

My Intrests: collecting Military radio and Old military radio trucks restoring them and using them at events i also enjoy
electronics, photography and computers also engineering

QTH is a small farm on the Welsh border with shropshire my work is the up keep and development of a large

corparate computer network which can be quite challenging at times and find the shows help keep me relaxed.

it is great to meet up with lots of other radio operators who come out to see us at the shows and they are always welcome to come and interact with the display. Anyway please find some pictures below which should help you understand what i do if you have any questions your always welcome to drop me an email

Please View list of shows at bottom of page

                           

                                     Sankey Comunications Trailer Being prepared For 2015 now with interconnect Boxes just wiring to fit now

                             

                       Display at Tern Valley Show                                 Back of Landrover Before Update to Motorola pc

     

            Landrover at Oswestry show clark mast only up 4 sections also GW6MXJ in his Gaz 66 Radio Vehicle very nice truck

            Also at front is low profile monopole antenna known as the washing line about 39Mhz - 79Mhz

this is the mobile shack for the summer used mainly at country shows and military events we also attend charity events,village fetes,even educational displays we are more than happy to get the younger generation involved in the hobby,we are more than happy to give talks on military radio communications i have been collecting military radio for many years but only past my license just over a year ago

                                  

                                           Sankey Comms Trailer                                                  HF Mini V Beam & Portable Mast        

This was the latest adition this year the correct Sankey comms trailer in service with the military it would have housed 4 teleprinters with operators now restored by a friend of mine and i have started building the display to house radios 19 set,larkspur c13,clansman vrc321, lynwood tactical computer now re built to run radio software eg hrd, psk31, log's and lots more when we display at shows the pc displays a video on the history of the royal signals and current service training

My latest addition a now fully working 19 set ,Wave meter and lots of spares i am planning to include this in the display next year we have restored a sankey comms trailer and hope to display early valve sets and Larkspur in this the display is all fully working and any licensed members are more than welcome to come and use the kit at any of the shows we display at

 

 

 

Back of Landrover now updated with newer PC and desk for FT-450 and dual band radio it would be nice next year to get teleprinter kit back in and working.The pc is a Motorola MW800 with touch screen full GPS reciever built in and also LTE,GPRS,3G,4G all using external antennas on the side storks as veiwed below this opens endless posabilitys at the moment it runs an APRS client and call logging also hrd lots may happen not sure at this moment in time

          

           Restored mk2 19 set we will have this on the                            Modified antenna mount for dualband and gps   antenna                

                                  display this year                                                           this is very simlar to mount introduced on defender for GPS

Well i have received one or two questions about the power source i will try and make it as simple as possible. The land rover has it own pair of batteries between the seats giving 24v all of the Land rover runs 24v as standard with it being designated FFR its fitted for radio there are multiple earthing points all over the place also all cables run in fully screened copper braided conduit power is from a specially built 90 amp 24v alternator this then feeds back to a control box in the back from their power also goes to a shunt box which allows split charging of up to 4 x 100 amp 12volt batteries 2 pairs in series to give 24 volt . In the battery box under the radio shelf. I have 2x 110 amp battery's in series feeding 24volt to the military radio kit and 2 x 110 amp 12 volt batteries in parallel going to a power distribution box i built last year which houses a digital display, small circuit plus a shunt and some thermal trips this helps to monitor the battery's and see what’s going on with the power which then feeds the 12 volt kit e.g.: ft450/computer/dual band radio /also pre amp and bits
