DSO changes - April 2012

I waited until it was light, but couldn't wait for the rain to clear...

This site was listed as having a new transmit array at DSO - so what would I find on a grey morning north of Swindon?

There used to be a cardioid dipole array on the left hand side of the plant room. The new transmit array consists of three panels which in this view are trying to merge into the background of mobile phone antennas

Still a trough for receive. I believe this is more to do with the age of the site than for technical reasons. The GPS cone was visible in earlier photos - not known if this forms part of the relay for timing purposes.

Another view from "round the corner". There appears to be a degree (or two) of mechanical down-tilt on the panels
