DALMALLY

Photos by Martin Briscoe Page last updated: 2017-09-05

1990s (original tower) to 2003

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
