|Dalmally is located just North of the old military road from Dalmally with the Duncan Ban MacIntyre Memorial on the other side of the road|
It is fed from Dychliemore which is a solar / wind power active deflector relaying Torosay
The earliest of the pictures are probably in the 1990s though could be 1980s
Services transferred to the new tower in August 2000.
|At this stage the receive antenna was likely to be the two yagis just visible about one third of the way up on the right hand side of the tower|
There is also a group of four logs slightly higher up - possibly an earlier arrangement which became unsatisfactory?
|By 2001 a new tower had been built but the old structure had been only partially dismantled|
|The old tower is missing its top section - which is just visible on the ground to the left of the vehicle|
By this stage the receive antenna had evolved to a group of four yagis, very close to the ground - but the logs were still in place higher up
|Another view of the receive yagis on the old tower|
|The receive antenna on the new tower - the grey cabinet is for one of the mobile networks|
|Above and below: by 2003 the old tower had been completely removed|
