THE TRANSMISSION GALLERY

TRURO

In analogue days...

Located on a hill slightly down river from Truro, behind Truro School and above Boscawen Park tucked up a narrow country lane

A relay of Redruth but with site number 131.20 suggests things were not entirely simple here...old Ofcom data says "BBC1/2 fed from Caradon Hill". It's also an ex-IBA site embedded in former-BBC territory

It's probably no small coincidence that many of the SHF links also seem to be aimed at Caradon Hill or Redruth...






The broadcast antennas are quite difficult to identify amongst everything else - but one of the receive logs is on the right, about half way up...


...transmit is from the two panels, facing to the left, hiding amongst the SHF dishes near the top




In this view the transmit panels are facing right, just above the large dish, and the other receive log is lower down and on the left
