INFO Scroller

GB3TV info 20/11/2017

The faulty video switchers were passed to Bob (of Gadget Corner) earlier in November 2017 for examination, together with a new switcher for interfacing with the repeater logic.

The most recent video switcher that was removed has been repaired , plus the previous (original) switcher unit has also been repaired.

Both units were power problems, one had a duff 7805 regulator, and has now been replaced with a small switch mode dc-dc pcb.

The oldest switcher unit was also a power problem, the track between the dc socket to the input protection diode was dry jointed, that has now been re-soldered and strengthened.

There is a further switcher unit available, a different manufacturer, and that has had cables made up, and a small interface board made to suit the repeater logic and audio connections.

Now all that appears to be needed is for a nice day and the TV keepers to put it back !!!!!
