Comments: Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant was originally a TV relay of Blaenplwyf (via Llangurig Link and Long Mountain); it still relays Long Mountain but the latter is now line fed. For FM it is a relay of Llangollen. Pre B700 allocations: 45/49/42.

I visited this site in a howling gale, leaving me having to kneel down in order to operate the camera without excessive shake! It seems NGW have taken to recycling signs at the bottom of the very steep acess road, with an authorised personnel only sign being re used. Wandering up the acess road brings you to a compound on top of the hill in which the mast sits – note the Crown Castle sign is falling to bits – in this wind, I'm not suprised! Tx arrangement for TV is a cardioid, and for FM is 4 slant dipoles, all around the mast. Rx is more interesting, with FM Rx on Llangollen, NNE, TV on long Mountain, SSE, and a single Log pointing E at (possibly) The Wrekin. Any ideas what it's for?
