The following antennas were used for EME on 144 MHz between 1994 and Nov-2001, when they were damaged by a strong wind storm. They were 8x17 M2 (5WL) on a 15 m. high tower

Details of the Azimuth indication. A B/W camera moving together with the mast and a fixed 360? scale. Simple, cheap but giving an accuracy of +/- 1?.  The indication is viewed in the shack with the help of a video capture card in the computer.
