Michael Gregg, KF6WRW

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.
