Comments: Glyn Ceiriog is a relay of Moel-y-Parc (via Pontfadog). Pre B700 allocations: 58/49/54.

January 2006

Not many homes in the village of Glyn Ceiriog use the relay, as there is no line-of-sight to the pole from the bottom of the steep hill. I think they themselves use Pontfadog, from looking at the directions that the aerials on the homes are pointing.

Glyn Ceiriog was originally an IBA landlord site which entered service during June 1980, with S4C avialable from the November 1982 launch.




At the bottom of the wooden pole, 2 vertically polarised log periodic Rx aerials look over the valley towards the Pontfadog relay. At the top, 2 crossed log periodic Tx antenna point either way down the valley.












I was impressed by a group of three buzzards that circled
effortlessly over head for the entire time I was on site!




Incidentally, if anyone is looking for a beautiful place to build a house, an abandoned
self-build project lies about 20 metres down the track from this site. If it were
completed, it would be a stunning location for a home, with some splendid views.
