Cavity antennas and new kit
« on: April 27, 2011, 05:45:55 PM »
Following the refits, was it possible to reuse the existing cavity antennas for some of the new radio fit or did they all have to use their own antennas?

Been there, had that, not very funny.  Well, not until deflating the cavity that had to be pumped up with some form of gas for said inspection.  But that's just being childish.... lol

Stop it!!!

This is the Engineering thread not chit chat.

As for the question, the answer is no, each of the new fits required their own antennas, however the new broadband aerial (UHL/VHF) was mounted on a new metal plate over one of the cavaties.

Was going to make a crack about the broadband but don't want to get told off by Himself.

Ok thanks for that Smiler - Now for the follow up  :D

With the size of the A/C was there a requirement to fit multiple radiators (above/below) for coverage and was there a requirement to carry out a radiation survey post installation.
