This is the one Mike Smith couldn't find. It's at the top of Harpers Hill ¾ mile south west of the town centre, ¼ mile north west of the A381 Kingsbridge road. The pictures were taken from about 300-400 yards away from a position in Green Lane. There is a farm near the top of Harpers Hill where the site could be accessed. However the field in question had a lock on the gate and there was nobody around to ask permission to enter. With livestock about I didn't fancy just helping myself so I decided to exercise the zoom on my new camera instead. Quite pleased with the results considering the poor light conditions and no tripod.

The second picture shows a Yagi aerial at the top of the mast which I believe is the rebroadcast link. It is directed towards the main transmitter at Soar 17 miles to the south west.

The third picture is an extreme zoom on the TX aerial. This is pointing north west towards Buckfastleigh rather than to Totnes itself to the north east.

The site is shared with Orange GSM and UMTS.
