PRV-17 „Lineyka” (Russian designation: 1RL141; Cyrillic: ПРВ-17 «Линейка» — 1РЛ141; NATO-designator: “Odd Group”) was an 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 former site in Medina (Hungary) with the typical construction of the building with the hill for the trailer with the mounted antennas. Now there is a tower with a NATO radar, probably an AN/FPS-117. Not all compensation antennas were mounted at this PRV–17 shown here, however.
