Yes, you're right about the repeater power - it was supplied through the cable. Do you know if the
hut was simple repeater station, as opposed to a power-feed station? If that's the case, then it
would not have a generator, and I'd agree that the device is probably a heat exchanger.
But there's another thing that still makes me think it's a load bank rather than a heat exchanger:
the vertical tubes don't seem to be interconnected at the top, like in an air-conditioning coil or
car radiator. Of course, each tube could actually be a shell containing a loop of fluid-carrying

I didn't think these repeaters had a generator. Aren't the
repeaters powered through the coax? This looks like it goes through
the slab into the vault. Didn't see any connections on the exposed
part for electrical.
