Interesting Facts/Records (in own words): Puckeridge DECCA tower is one of the oldest and perhaps most impressionant antenna towers built for the DECCA navigation radio system, which was until the ninties a very important radio navigation system for ships and aircrafts.
Puckeridge DECCA tower is a free-standing tower standing on huge insulators, because its whole structure acts as antenna.
Puckeridge DECCA tower carried in its early days a horizontal cross on its top.

I've already told you we have no way of accessing any new cities for England or the United Kingdom as the list is already too long. And, this is mostly because of you, in fact. Until we can figure out how to correct this, for the nth time, do not request any additional cities in England or the U.K. page.
