Photos by Nick Way and Mike D Smith Page last updated: 2014-06-15

Earlier photos

There was some work going on at Carmel when Mike Smith got there. The contractors had just demounted the microwave dish when we arrived, and were lowering it to the ground, as can be seen in the penultimate photo.

The UHF TV and VHF aerials are obvious, but just above the VHF array is another smaller one - possibly DAB?
