ROADWATER

New pole and DSO changes

Mervyn reports: "It was obvious as soon as I arrived, the pole was new, but the cabin looks to be the original, still leaning over with its shorter Crown Castle name board so I didn't bother with a revised photo of that"


Definitely a new pole at Roadwater complete with a strain gauge wire visible in this view. (Editor's note: I believe it's a "fall arrest" cable)

Also the input has been upgraded from two to four logs


Unusually for a relay, Roadwater transmits horizontally polarised and the vertical logs receive from Washford


The new pole looks more substantial than the original
