|What would appear to be a new log rx aerial has appeared just above the top platform. |
16th April 2014 update: we have reason to believe that this "new log" is in fact a separate transmit aerial which is used to feed the Berrynarbor relay (the only relay dependant on Combe Martin).
|FM rx on Carmel.|
|Satellite dish used to receive an RBS feed for the 2 BBC DTT multiplexes.|
|Unfortunately I didn't have the right lens with me for close up, but here's a sad little relic from the glory days. The IBA must have had a whole load of personalised concrete boundary markers made for them, and seeing this little reminder of "the old days" brought a lump to my throat....|
|On the horizon can be seen the Welsh coast.|
