Comments: Tregynon was originally a relay of Blaenplwyf (via Llangurig Link and Long Mountain). It still relays Long Mountain, but the latter is now line fed.

Tregynon. A small rural station about 5km north of Newtown, Powys. Although near the top of a hill, it is not particularly easy to photograph since it is constructed up against a belt of trees, which mask proper views.

The station in fact provides coverage to a number of villages: not only Tregynon, but also Bettws Cedewain, and coverage seems to extend at least as far north as New Mills. A fair number of isolated farms and houses also use the relay, since the local valleys are shielded from the more obvious candidates, Long Mountain and Llandinam.

It's not clear who the other user is at this site but their incoming line termination does not look exactly weatherproof!
