Detective Work!

I took some pictures of the old radio equipment I recently listed in the Marketplace.

One of those, shown here, had a radio callsign pasted to it, so I thought I'd try and find out to whom the equipment belonged. The callsign is/was VK3EN. I did a search for this on Google and it gave me a YouTube video from film taken in 1986...

That lists the owner as "Henry" and lo and behold, at about 0:49s into the video you can see the very same piece of radio equipment, and nearby Henry himself.
Here's a couple of screenshots from the video.

I think Andrew Henry would be pleased ...its amazing the call sign was enough ...
I was wondering what that thing that looked like a light was and it was light :mrgreen:
The electromagnetic spectrum has no theoretical limit at either end. If all the mass/energy in the Universe is considered a 'limit', then that would be the only real theoretical limit to the maximum frequency attainable.
