430MHz ATV transmitter

Start on 1997/11/14, all pictures were taken in Oct.1997.

ATV transmitter on 430MHz band used with special transmitting tube named 5894 for final stage. Run about 10W average for TV signal and 20W at synchronous peak. Final stage control gird modulation works well for NTSC color video signal and good at audio as well.

Block diagram HERE you can find. Wow!! All tubes.. but sorry for Japanese.
Inside the case CRICK HERE,  you can find some pictures.


If you compare the equipment to the chair below, you can find the size of the equipment. This is a huge or bulky massive equipment, about 40cm(W,D), 20cm(H).
This cabnit was completely my handmade. I've taking pains for drilling and painting.

Also I was annoyed with plenty of screw which fix the angled case to chases. I have opened this case to take picture recently, maybe after 10 years close...
