HF pulse recording system.

Three plywood antennas operating at three different frequencies near 500 MHz. The antennas were installed at Mount St. Patrick, west of Ottawa.

A film analyser made by Southern Instrument, an English firm. This instrument transferred paper chart recordings to 35 mm film, and was capable of various analysis procedures.

Canada's first mobile satellite receiving station. The dish is mounted on an old searchlight base which has been modified for remote pointing. The truck is an old Army ambulance which was refurbished with the antenna controller and satellite receiver.

This photo shows Gerald inside the ambulance sitting at the console of the satellite receiver.

The mobile satellite receiver being loaded onto a Hercules aircraft for transport to Resolute Bay, Nunavut.

Satellite receiving system set up near Eureka, Nunavut for communications tests in collaboration with Telesat Canada and the US Army.
