Comments: Carno was originally a relay of Blaenplwyf (via Llangurig Link, Long Mountain and Llandinam). It still relays Llandinam but the latter is now line-fed.

Dropped in on this site on my way through Wales again, after the light beat me last time I was in the area.

Not a particularly interesting TV relay, with the usual GSM appendages. 8 crossed vertical logs transmit, while one, mounted nearer the base of the mast, next to some mobile phone backhaul kit, receives.

Photos taken in Standard Welsh weather of light drizzle and fog. I was limited to how close I could get by disappearing footpaths and the lack of any obvious access.

Carno was originally a BBC landlord site which entered service in March 1980, with S4C available from the November 1982 launch.

This site is now included in the Update List for the following reason:
Rx aerial; access may be difficult
