PRV–17 “Odd Group”

Air-Defense Search Radar (height finder) in the States of the former Warsaw Pact.

The transmitter of the PRV–17 obtains it's power by a Stabilotron (Type: MIS-2).

The pictures show a site in Medina (Hungary) with the typical construction of the building with the hill for the trailer with the mounted antennae. Not all compensation antennae were mounted at this PRV–17 shown here, however.
