Comments: Llangadfan is a relay of Blaenplwyf (via Llangurig Link and Long Mountain)


This site has grown considerably over the years as seems normal.

As well as the original TV transmission and subsequent Nicam stereo huts, there is now a presence by Vodaphone, Orange and O2. (Don't remember seeing any mention of Tmobile).

The most recent addition is an Airwave (emergency services) communications hut and antennae, together with LPG gas cylinders providing fuel to a backup generator.

I assume the satellite dish provides a downlink- it appeared at the same time as digital switchover.
I wonder if Llangadfan still receives signals from Long Mountain?

There is also a curiously mounted microwave link at lower than waist height- such that it must be blocked by passing sheep. Obviously not a critical connection.
