Comments: Harbertonford is a relay of Beacon Hill. Pre B700 allocations: 52/48/56.

Harbertonford is a tripole with an added shadow that was installed to support the O2 Installation.

The tower has 4 horizontal logs for receiving Beacon Hill and a fifth one above them for transmission so presumably, like Mount Vernon, the white cylinder shields something other than a broadcast aerial.

(We've had confirmation from Neil Byng (M1CFK) that the top cylinder is a 3uk /tmobile tx aerial, under the mbnl umbrella).

Harbertonford was built by the IBA to serve about 500 people in Harbertonford and Austin's Close. It entered service on 9-May-1986.
