Comments: Ross-on-Wye is a relay of Ridge Hill. Pre-B700 allocations: 50/59/55.

This one is well hidden by trees behind the local community centre. Halfway up the mast we have what I assume is the receive aerial and some dishes pointing to Ridge Hill, but at the top the West pointing aerial is vertical and the South pointing one is horizontal.

Transmit is the vertically polarised log at the top on the left. The Ridge Hill receive aerial is lower down on the right between the two sets of mobile phone panels. The horizontally polarised log at the top on the right is pointing south. It is possible that this was to receive Mendip, but we cannot find any documentation that indicates that Ross-on-Wye has ever relayed Mendip.

The year was 1990.
