A Secret Bunker Of The Bialowieza Forest

The three-storeyed communication bunker we’ll visit today has been abandoned since 2005. Its location is very difficult to determine as it is hidden deep in the Bialowieza forest.

  1. back lighting is impossible in this case…unless the metal plate the numbers are painted on is transparent. add to this that there is no power available TO back light anything at all. it’s phosphorescence, period. common examples of phosphorescent materials are glow-in-the-dark clock dials that are visible in darkness after being charged with a bright light. EngrishBob is exactly right. thumbs up

    • Backlighting without electricity is possible by doing it the same way as using a lamp or LED behind the display, but using a radioactive tritium gas capsule with a phosphorescent coating. They us them in emergency exit signs and all kinds of uses where illumination is critical and needed without a power source. It glows for years just like radium paint does because it uses a radioactive source too, but much safer then radium paint. That’s some nasty stuff… (and what was used on this dial, it’s just painted on the face of the meter)

      • Tritium Illumination, this is how it’s done today and works great as a back light source.

  2. In the time it took someone to unwind the copper from all those stators they could have made twice the money collecting cans and bottles.
