ZL VHF history

Auckland VHF convention 1984

 

 

Drew Morphett picture shown: circa 1984. "The Winners" was recorded in Studio 32 at ABC-TV's Ripponlea (Melbourne) studios. I was a trainee there at the time (notes from Adam VK4GHz 2016)

Receiving the commercial satellite

 

 

 

 

 

 A 10ft STC microwave dish. Weighed a ton almost literally - ZL1BJB owned 

 Irving Spackman ZL1MO on far LHS. (Three in the middle unknown) Vaughan Henderson on the far RHS, very young then

 Tom Bevan ZL1THG RHS with sunglasses and beard

The small dish was on 2.4G  Amateur satellite. Down link I think.  Around the corner was ZL1THG and others trying to RX it as well. Cannot remember what exactly we achieved.
