Hannington DSO 2 - 13th to 19th October 2010; showing the site in preparation for the heli-lifts

When Mark visited the site on 13-Oct-2010 preparations were clearly in hand for a helicopter lift. Sections of the GRP cylinder had been removed in readiness for the separation of the two halves. (The upper half of the old aerial was used for Ch4 on channel 66.)

Mark returned on 15-Oct-2010...

Local resident Gill Taylor took this photo of the steel collar being removed, between Mark's visits on the 13 and 19th of October

... and so on 19-Oct-2010 the metal collar which had been at the base of the old cylinder has now also been removed.

The components of the new main aerial system are on the ground waiting to be fitted.
