bow brickhill

It is sited on a hill to the South East of the City. It is surrounded by trees which makes it rather difficult to photograph. I took these pictures last year (2002) but for some inexplicable reason have only just got round to putting them on the site.

Coverage  

This relay of Sandy Heath covers an area of central and west Northampton. It is an interesting mast being made of what looks like thin metal. It receives the signal off air from sandy heath on the lower aerial and re-transmits using the white cells on the top. The transmitter is very directional. Nice to see a mast without the usual mobile phone cells.
