Radio observation in hydrogen line (1420MHz)

Mounting the Ptarmigan Triffid Military Phased Array to allow altitude to be varied.

Photos below show my attempt today to mount the array so that I can aim at Zenith and vary altitude between horizon and Zenith.

I have yet to try it outside – might not work!

I needed to find a way of attaching two tubes at right-angles (old trampoline tubes) and then holding it firmly upright (idea is to use the heavy parasol base for this in photo below).
