Another type of Aerial Bracket on 110 FFR
« on: July 15, 2017, 11:02:15 PM »
At the Minto Auction today I noticed this aerial bracket I have not seen before. Can anyone advise on what it was used for? Mobile phone? Apologies for the av quality of the photo, it is actually 18 megapixel so I simply photographed the computer screen with my phone.
thanks,

Another photo of aerial mount.  GPS makes sense to identify an exact position. I understand infantry could wear infrared beacons/strobes on their helmets so they could be visible to their own aircraft in exercises, wondering if the same was done for vehicles?

Have a close look at the cable from the device. If it is coaxial then the betting would be gps. If not then gps is ruled out.
