The mast at the top Quainton Hill is found after a short but pleasant walk along the North Buckinghamshire Way from the beautiful village of Quainton, north-west of Aylesbury. The pair of four element Yagi aerials are arranged in a cross to provide mixed polarized signals on 96.2MHz for the ILR station Mix 96. The aerials can be seen clearly in the close-up shot, right at the top of the mast, and face south-east, providing good directional signals across Aylesbury and beyond. The mast is located at the Thames Water waterworks.

[It looks to me like half of one of the vertical elements was missing at the time these photos were taken - mb]
