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 (obsolete), T85 working (but sensibly stopped when the Red Arrows arrived), 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:
