Pauldon Associates
210 Utica St.
Tonawanda, NY 14150
We use Pauldon's model PD1200-N 1200 mhz amplifier to boost the 1 watt tranmitter signal to about 12 watts.

We use televisions by Hitachi and VCR's by Panasonic and Emerson for displaying/recording the signals. A Commodore VIC-20 computer has been programmed to display the color-bar display with my callsign. We captured the signals for computer display using a WinVisionPro card from Quanta (2629 Terminal Blvd, Mountain View, CA, 94043 415-967-5791). We are very impressed with the ease of use and quality capture of this inexpensive card. We use various cameras, including a Konica CV-301 which was rescued from a local flea market.
