Comments: Mevagissey is a relay of Caradon Hill

Updated September 2015

Derek wrote: "A horizontally polarised relay!

I think the low level 3-element VHF vertical yagi, which points out to sea, may be HM Coastguard.

Three, possibly all four, of the four 2G mobile operators are here, along with MM02 Airwave. (Sitefinder now doesn't, but used to, list Vodafone at this site)."

Neil White was nearby in September 2015. Unfortunately we can't confirm whether there's any change to the transmit and receive antenna configuration of the relay but it's clear a V-SAT dish has been added. Also there seems to have been a certain amount of "consolidation" of the mobile phone antennas with one level completely removed - reflecting the various mergers and infrastructure sharing agreements now in place
