Wireless Video Ground Station
This page will talk about my wireless video system's ground station
Before we begin
I think it is fair to say that even the most "gee-wiz" ground station is pointless if it doesn't allow you to capture the best possible video.  When putting together my ground station, I started with the basics; a good receiver and antenna from Black Widow A/V, and a Sony TRV-230 digital camcorder. Each addition I have made beyond the basics has been a matter of convenience to make transportation and setup easier.
The equipment
This is the humble container for my ground station.  The box is a 19" Benchtop brand toolbox from K-mart and cost me $9.99.  It is the perfect size to hold all of my field equipment.
Here you can see the system fully deployed.  The receiver is mounted on a boom made of 3/4 inch pvc pipe and various fittings.  Two 3/4 inch pipe clamps hold the base of the boom to the inside of the box using suitably sized nuts and bolts.   No glue is used in the boom so that the whole setup can be folded down for storage.  The whole thing collapses to fit inside the box.
This is another view of the deployed system showing how the boom is articulated.  This allows me to orient the antenna for best reception.  The receiver is mounted to the boom via the conveniently located mounting tabs on the side of the receiver.
This shows the receiver boom stowed for travel.  A future enhancement to the box includes some sort of tie-downs  for all the different pieces of equipment.  Right now they just sort of rattle round in the box (but I'm careful not to let them rattle too much)
These are my barely-recognizable Sony PLM-50 video glasses.  In their standard configuration they were virtually useless in full sunlight.  I removed the headmount, drilled holes at the corners to add a makeshift strap, and then crafted a gasket that would give an almost light tight seal around my face.  It's not much to look at, but it works well.  The black foam of the gasket was acquired from the junk bin at work.
