Wright's Aerials

Aerial photography - Ancient Gallery

From the VHF TV era this is typical of the set-top ‘V’ aerial. One element was connected to the co-axial inner and the other to the screen. The elements were telescopic and adjustable, and the base could be wall-mounted with the elements pointing up and down and forming a centre-fed dipole. Some ‘V’ aerials had isolated elements and some didn’t. Those without could deliver lethal shocks when connected to some of the dodgy old TV sets of the era. As, of course, could the roof aerials, but that’s another story, and a long one . . .

Thanks to Roger Piper for this contribution.
