Meanwhile on the top of a nearby mountain…


The picture shows three 15 meter masts to hold the infrastructure for (from left to right) the A System management which interconnects across the whole island, A local outlet for 81, and the new tracking system.

The build team is (from left to right) Colin Auld, Nathan Roberts, John Taylor (on quad-bike) and Kenneth Cupples. (Kenneth McRae behind the camera).

This is just one of 12 sites in and around the island where we have equipment deployed. Not all are this big, some are just small RoIP stations but at every single site the locals and land-owners have been extremely helpful and the hospitality has been second to none – It make the whole event so much more enjoyable.

More than that – without our communications network we wouldn’t have a rally!
