I toured the Outer Hebrides last year and drove past this array near the Port of Ness on Lewis. I dont have a great deal of knowledge of antenna’s, but I wondered if anyone might be able to name the types and uses of these. It’s look a really serious setup.

Hi Rob,

I'll concur with Gary's sentiments in that we'd all love such an antenna farm or even the space to erect such beauties! Wink

I know that a local to me Amateur Radio group (Cambs-Hams) did a DXpedition there a few years back :-

Other than that I have no idea about the setup there. (Would be good to find out more.)


Great posting with a radio interest.

All the best,
Victor

I thought the Outer Hebrides was both dead and amazing.
I stayed for a week in the Uists, then another week at Lewis.
Absolutely no QRM. And a mean NOTHING.
I thought that there was something wrong with the radio or antenna. New coax, triple checked the radio and antenna. Then after about an hour a nice lady came on with an english accent and CQ’ed.
Got chatting and found out it was Ann 116AT111 in Istanbul, Turkey.
5 & 9 either was chatting to her on 12w. Then Argentina and then Andre 50CB272 in Russia. Nothing else on the radio from the UK and never was.
I eventually chatted to three 11m Hams in Lewis, but it was a struggle.
The mountains between Uist and Lewis kill most communications between them both.
I found no operators on Uist. Even the lewis operators knew of no one there on the Uists.
SUMMARY.
Poor local comms and great DX.

I may be wrong but these ants could be GM7PBB.
On his site he mentions a 1.3km beverage rx antenna and he has an observatory as well.
