Michael spent months working on how to get video from the sky to the ground. He wound up with a small camera he mounted to his helmet using a custom bracket and a part made on a Markerbot 3D printer. He ran the video cable down to his foot where he had a 2W 2.4Ghz transmitter. He then had 2 patch panels antennas connected to the receiver. The dual patch panel was an idea from a co-worker of mine Antonio Forenza, KE5MRG.
Michael Wright, K6MFW, took a series of screen shots from Michael Greggs’s video.
