Pics of your Antenna's

Would be great to see what antenna's people are using, here's a pic and video of mine :P

My antenna's getting hit by a bit of heavy wind, but they can take it.

What your looking at is on the top, left is a Watson Co-linear 2m & 70cms. Middle is a wide range 25mhz to 1300mhz white stick with TX on 3 bands and to the top right is a royal discone. Middle left is a Yagi pointing in the winter hill direction. The two mounted on a small plate on the gutter are both VHF/UHF mobile whip antennas.

So, what have you got? :P

Great pics mate, and great set up.

That Cody Kite lifted antenna looks interesting, do you use it much and how high do you usually get it?

Not very high..The attached image is of a lifted centre fed that we worked all over Europe on 80 meters with using just 1 watt.

Not my antenna, and not even really the focus of the question.

This gizmo has been added to a CCTV camera pole where I'm working. What is it? It could be a camera in a dome, but it's not the usual black colour?

Any clues? I have a suspicion it could be an ANPR camera, which makes sense as we have a battle with deliveries - no deliveries 10am - 10pm, but none of the local businesses can have deliveries at any other time as that's when they open? The feeling is the council are doing away with traffic wardens and going with photo evidence. ImageImage

CCTV could be used on ANPR, if they use the right camera.
And are you talking about the horizontal object on the attached pole? If so, that almost certainly does not look like anything ANPR. As it does not have a lens on it & most ANPR cameras have at least one lens visible & normally two.
Is the box above an area where it will be covering vehicles in a specific position, such as entering or leaving a car park? And if so at what distance as Cameras need to get a good image of not just the number plate but also the vehicle to prove it's self in court.
What that box could be is a processing unit of some description. So that the images from the camera can be stored. An ANPR system needs CCTV images to be stored in a certain format & normally have a box, but one larger than that.

Yep, that downwards facing thing. It appeared suddenly and is overlooking the spot where vehicles load and unload but not sure of its purpose. However, we reckon def NOT anpr then? A ticket rides on this when I unload there tomorrow!

It could be an extra camera, or even a movement sensor to alert the camera operator. But having said that don't forget a lot of these cameras are not manned now, but were designed to be.
For example in Norwich the Camera system is now only manned on Friday & Saturday nights for use in Prince of Wales Rd etc.

Have a look at any wiring & see if you can see where it goes, it could be a number of things & if they have a camera, they don't need ANPR, they simply film the vehicle & ask for the details.
