Comments: Glyncorrwg is a relay of Presely (via Croeserw)

The Glyncorrwg relay is located 300m up the Western side of the valley (Glyn Corrwg), and provides TV to the town of the same name.

Glyncorrwg is in a isolated valley, completely surrounded on all sides by mountains and forests, the only way in or out by normal means is the road to Croesserw.

Even at this elevation reception is still difficult here, as demonstrated by there being 3 times as many log periodics used for reception than for transmision!

A single pair of crossed logs are used for transmission purposes. There are then 4 vertical logs pointing toward Croesserw, and then another 2 horizontal ones. I can't think where these two horizontal recieve logs are trying to pick up? They look slighly off-beam, by only a couple of degrees, to the vertical ones. Surely these can't be for the very low powered (now only 2W!) horizontal component to Croesserw's output? But where else if not?
