  1. I don't do often small houses but due to my interest in radio,was this a nice location. It's been abandoned for several years. There is a big collection of radio's there with some that deserve a restoration. The house next to it is not abandoned and the neighbours were at home so i could here some noises .So being quite and not making to much noise was needed. 1 like sprewells on a wheelchair IMG_3879-HDR-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 2 are you lonesome tonight IMG_3894-HDR-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 3 lucid dreams IMG_3834-HDR-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 4 video killed the radio star IMG_3827 by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 5 the white shoes IMG_3862-HDR by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 6 birdcage IMG_3846-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr 7 I can't live in a living room IMG_3873-Edit by Bart Hamradio, on Flickr

  5. Location #3 of the ‘Who’s hand was that Tour’ - ET Phone Home Visited with: PG UE, Carl Hartley, Nick Whitworth & Scott Chadwick. History This radio telescopes (interferometer) was built in 1954 to observe the changes in solar activity. On site there are around 50 radio telescopes. My Visit This was our last location on day one of the tour and with the light fading it was a race against time to get here before it got dark. So anyway, time won and when we arrived it was pitch black, luckily we found a sign pointing us in the right direction to walk amd within a few minutes we were stood on location and unpacking the gear. The location is a little out of the way and surrounded by corn fields which makes for an eerie feeling. That soon disappeared however when 5 torches were illuminating everything up! What I still find funny is that when we heard a car all went black as we turned the torches off and when the car had past ... Let there be light ! Maybe you had to be there! Anyway, as I mentioned it was very dark and we spent about an hour here trying to get a couple of images for our collections. I did a few long exposures then some bracketed and we even tried a little light painting. I managed to come away with two keepers from our time here and I can say I really like the result and I hope you do as well. Final thoughts This was a nice little site and it made a change from the usual places we had been visiting. It would have been nice to get on site when the sun was setting but you have to play the hand you're dealt and personally I think we all played it rather well. Few antics on the night as well including two of us hiding in the corn fields waiting to scare the hell out of a few of the group. It Never really went to plan and they did not even flinch!

  6. Probably been done to Death lol North Weald Bassett Essex OS Grid Ref: TL506040 Ongar Radio Transmitting Station occupied a site of 730 acres at North Weald in West Essex adjacent to the late 19th Century North Weald Redoubt, one of 13 London Mobilisation Centres. It was originally built in 1920 and operated by Marconi's Wireless Telegraph Company. In September 1929, control passed to Imperial and International Communications when the telegraphic communications of the Empire were placed in the hands of a single operating company. The name of the company was changed to Cable and Wireless in June 1934 and the company owned the radio station until the passing of the Commonwealth Telegraphs Act, 1949, whereby the United Kingdom radio services of the Post Office and Cable and Wireless Ltd. became integrated on April 1st 1950. Ongar Radio was one of three pairs of transmitting stations, each pair consisting of a transmitter and receiver station; Ongar being paired with Brentwood.
  7. On our way back from t'norf we were passing here so gave it a look....mega mega trashed a tornado ripping through it would have left less mess! More here if you can bear it... http://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/sets/72157635217670302/
  8. The Radio station was a transmission faclity built in 1926 used to transmit telegraph messages to the Commonwealth as part of the Imperial Wireless chain, it was owned by the Post Office. During World War II many of the transmitters were used by the Armed Forces. The station stopped transmitting in 2004, the 1926 building 'A 'has since been taken over by BT as a document storage facility whilst this site, building 'B' built in the 50's was last used as a customer service centre for MM O2 airwave. I'm not sure when they moved out but it must have been after 2007 as there are signs reflecting the smoking ban. The place has taken a severe beating from the pikey, it’s pretty much trashed everywhere and the basement is completely flooded. A very relaxed explore, I didn't see anyone else the whole time I was there.
  9. Splored with UrbanX, Skeleton Key, Tog, Mrs Trog, Chieftan and Beer Switch This is a vast semi live site, the research shows that it has around 12 radio telescopes (7 decommisioned and 5 in use) this is only one of them. Its called the One Mile Telescope and is made up of several moveable dishes, one of which runs down a track, driven by a train like affair on the dish's platform We only touched on a small part of the site today, definitley in need of a re-visit to mooch the rest Some History The Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory (MRAO) is home to a number of large radio telescopes. Radio interferometry started in the mid-1940s on the outskirts of Cambridge, but with funding from the Science Research Council and a donation of £100,000 from Mullard Limited, construction of the Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory commenced. The observatory was founded under Martin Ryle of the Radio-Astronomy Group of the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge and was opened by Sir Edward Victor Appleton on 25 July 1957 One Mile Telescope The One-Mile Telescope at the Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory (MRAO) is an array of radio telescopes, fully steerable 60-ft-diameter parabolic reflectors operating simultaneously at 1407 MHz and 408 MHz) designed to perform aperture synthesis interferometry, completed by the Radio Astronomy Group of Cambridge University in 1964 "To extend the range of our observations far back in time to the earliest days of the Universe" These are the trains that move the middle telescope along the rail SK fancied a climb The offices Time to go home, it had been a very long day
  10. The Marconi Radio Factory, Chelmsford This was a return visit after getting busted by plod in March after only 20 minutes. Back then we only touched the out buildings but had seen enough for it to be put on the back burner. With my new baby daughter expected within the week then I was under orders to stay near to home so I could hot foot it back if the "head appeared". Little did I know that I would be spending ten hours in a police cell and wouldn't walk through the front door until the early hours of the next morning The History Marconi's New Street factory was built in 1912 next to the Great Eastern Railway. A railway siding ran across New Street into the factory yard and brought materials in one end of the works and took finished radio equipment out of the other. At the South end of the building two huge aerial masts once stood, the 450ft (137m) high "Marconi Poles" formed Chelmsfords most prominent landmark. During the Second World War the Marconi Company employed more than 6,000 people in Chelmsford. Producing vital military communications equipment, the New St factory became a target for bombing and was hit in May 1941 with a loss of 17 lives. In 1920, two years before the BBC was established, the New Street factory made history as the site of the first official British sound broadcasts including the famous concert by Dame Nellie Melba which was heard all over the world. Right, just to let you all know that the place is PIR'd up to the hilt, sec were on the way almost as soon a we entered and unfortunately we ended up here for nearly 11 hours
  11. After a cracking day exploring with Skeleton Key, Priority 7 and Tstranger1066 we ended up in North Weald North Weald Redoubt In the late Victorian period (1889-1903) mobilisation centres were constructed around the London area in order to provide ready ammunition in order to defend the city. These centres were not designed as forts themselves, although they could have been armed if the need arose. Being a mobilisation centre, if the need for armament did become apparent, the North Weald Redoubt would have been armed with whatever guns were seen as appropriate at the time. Also on the site are two rare Allen William Turrets North Weald/Ongar Radio Transmitter It was originally built in 1920 and operated by Marconi's Wireless Telegraph Company. In September 1929, control passed to Imperial and International Communications when the telegraphic communications of the Empire were placed in the hands of a single operating company. The first radio-telegraphic services in 1921 connected London with Paris and Berne using Morse code. The transmitters were designed to operate simultaneously from 'A' station and the signals were mixed and radiated from one aerial on two different frequencies. The two Allen William Turrets Thanks for looking
  12. The Marconi Radio Factory Visited with Skeleton Key, Priority 7 and Tstranger1066. This was the 2nd stop on our day trip to Chelmsford. The place looks absolutely fantastic, full of bits and bobs, but unfortunately after only 20 minutes we got nabbed by 4 really amicable members of Essex Plod and asked to leave the premises, so it's on the cards for a revisit The History Marconi's New Street factory was built in 1912 next to the Great Eastern Railway.

The workers entrance I learned everything I know about attenuation of radio signals and the impact and mitigation of ionospheric anomalies from this book, not to mention two-dimensional ionospheric tomography over low-latitude regions The Gang Thanks for looking
