Default Unusual place for a Yagi

Spotted on a recent trip to Glencoe, pointed at Ballachulish which is about
a mile to the north.

I notice there's one tar line across the width of the carriage way (just
about where that hyperlink plonks you), but its only a single, so unlikely
to be traffic data telemetry.

Back towards the church there's been a trench across the road at some point
and then backfilled.
.....biblical internets?

Possibly because neither an aerial nor a satellite dish wd be welcome on
the church (a listed building) or within its grounds?

Aww sweet Pity the railway is no more anyway..


That might be about the only position where any signal can be had just
there. Or it Might be a sort of self help system they do exist in areas
like that where a receive aerial gets the main signal and sends it down
a long co-ax to an amplifier to other aerials that re transmit the
original signals...
