Any info on this derelict radio station?

Canmore Link (http://canmore.rcahms.gov.uk/en/site/157903/details/costa+hill+ernie+tower/) Location (http://www.flashearth.com/?lat=59.147509&lon=-3.204308&z=17.3&r=0&src=msl)

One website suggested there was a derelict experimental wind generator in the area

Another website mentioned Finally a "Christmas Tree" mast 36 m high was erected on Costa Hill, ...

I can't find anything about its function, date etc.

The RCAHMS aerial photo site also has wartime coverage (from memory). I was also looking for signs of the air to groung firing range at Costa Hill which, presumably were not on the hill top!

PNK, Carnaby has linked the CANMORE images:)

I too was looking at the range area when I saw the subject site.
