Comments: Lydden is a relay of Dover

August 2009, updated April 2014

This was the last of the Dover relays to be photographed for the Transmission Gallery

Lydden is in a valley and partially screened from Dover - the relay is a minimalist installation with tx dipoles and rx log

On the first visit I approached via a public footpath which was blocked by locked field gates with "MOD" carved into the woodwork. Subsequent research identified a more direct track - after 4 1/2 years and with DSO in the meantime would there be anything different?

Looking towards the intended service area


So here we are...the site number has faded or the stick-on numbers have unstuck themselves. Metering cabinet, check. Cable ladder, check. VSAT dish...


...check!




No change at the top


The ground rises if we go a bit further and it's possible to confirm...


...this is a relay of Dover!
