Ground Radar: Early warning search radars
(and other things....).
The Radar Displays:
- A video I took during the open day in 1989 to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the re-opening of the Staxton Wold site. This shows the T84, T85 (working, sensibly stopped for the Red Arrows), HF200, SSR tower, Microwave link tower, T91 (working) and the Red Arrows.
- Console 64 showing Video map, range rings and aircraft, with 96 Russian bears being intercepted by 12 Phantoms.
- Console 64 showing Phase 1A style of Height Finder Azication. (It's not quite finished - strobe mark doesn't lay on etc.)
- Console 61 A scan with white noise and (permanent) targets
- Console 61 in Height Finder mode. The upper screen shows IFF from the PPI and radar from the Height Finder.
- Console 60 - deflection only. The screen was nowhere near as bright as it looks!
De-classified Air Publications etc in pdf format (all machine searchable).
If you want to read any of these, I would recommend that you download them first and then view them with Adobe Acrobat:
