Auckland Radio 1960-1979

Auckland Radio ZLD operator Ray Chandler

Auckland Radio ZLD operator Raymon Chandler, November 1960. Ray was a PO radio operator from 1947 until his retirement in 1989 and is a member of the Musick Point Radio Group. There has to be a good story about this photo!

Working on the 6-channel JRC single sideband transmitter (installed in 1967).

It looks like the tech is probing the high voltage parts with a neon stick to ensure the volts were dead prior to working on the transmitter. He seems to be keeping his other arm behind as we were trained to do to avoid getting plated.
