Golf & Romeo Towers - Google Earth?

#1
Calling all recipients of the GSM with clasp Northern Ireland...

Was trying to geo-tag a couple of old photos the other day. To cut a long story short, I'm trying to find where some of the Golf and Romeo Towers were on Google Earth but I'm not 100% sure if I've got the right places. If anyone can look on Google Maps (other online maps are available...) and send me the lat & long, I'd be grateful... G20 and G30 are the top of my list.

If anyone's feeling nostalgic, some photos here:

Thanks,

i can't help you on the G & R designated towers, but Foxfield sangar at Forkhill (the predecessor to the tower concept) is located at: 54 04' 45.56" 6 26' 34.17"
you can see the concreted of the foundations of the main OP, the helipad (5 o'clock from the OP) and at 6 o'clock from that, the location of where the radio mast was

There's a Youtube vid of G20 being lifted. This might be it - bandwith Nazis won't let me view it, and in the intervening 20 years I've forgotten where exactly we used to go to watch the Pumas lobbing out the scran, papers and RUC...

The dust cloud kicked up at the end of that video was desiccated spunk.

Fact.
