Aerial photography - Ancient Gallery

This is the elusive ‘K’ aerial. I’m calling it elusive because when I started searching for one to photograph, in 2000, it took until May 2003 before I found one. Yet in the 1950s this Belling Lee product was very popular. The vertical element is a director. The oblique rod forms the upper half of the dipole. The lower half of the dipole is also the supporting mast, which is insulated from the chimney bracket by rubber bushes. It was essential to know the transmitter direction before fitting the chimney bracket, because the chimney restricted the angle of adjustment. Cable connection was inside the unit shown in the inset picture.
