ANTENNA TRACKER TRIPOD

The following photo is of my Antenna Tracking/OSD field setup.

There's a 2.4gHz 14dB directional patch antenna on a pan/tilt servo mechanism which is cabled down to a local 2.4Gz receiver which outputs the audio/video signal from the camera on the plane. The video signal interfaces to the Lynx PCB (behind the small metal cover) where the software strips the GPS co'ordinates/data and uses it to orientate the antenna via the servo's.

The black cable is a +12vdc power source for the system, the white cable (bottom) is the RS232 signal to the laptop for Google Earth functionality.
