THE TRANSMISSION GALLERY
Photos by Ray Cooper
|The Corwen relay is located on a hillside immediately overlooking the town.
The transmit array is an interlaced log-periodic assembly, with one beam pushing power towards the town whilst the other illuminates the Dee valley eastwards as far as Glyndyfrdwy. The Corwen site is used as a feeder for the Glyndyfrdwy relay.
Left: the front entrance to the TV hut.( Couldn't get a squarer-on view because of reflections of the shiny newish-looking sign.)
A general view looking West.
Looking east-ish. Into a very bright sky unfortunately.
The business end. Main TV TX arials at top, an impressive 6-tier interleaved
using 12 units! Further down on the left-hand tower leg, the RBL aerial on Moel y Parc.
A couple of other-users dishes lower down the tower. Interesting, since the lower
one seems to have lost its weather membrane, allowing a peep at the feed point.
You can't actually see the town from the site at ground level, but just a bit down the hill is a
viewing platform, giving a good view of the town as shown. Lighting conditions difficult, the shadow
of the hillside leaves most of the town in gloom in the winter months. Note flooding in fields.
