I have found a bit more information about Chain Home Low (CHL) and an interactive map showing all of the Orkney CHL sites.

www.anti-aircraft.co.uk/chain_home_low_map.html

In fact, I think it wortwhile checking out the rest of the site as there are some interesting facts about Radar and Anti-aircraft defences

www.anti-aircraft.co.uk/index.html

Also - there is some information re a similar CHL site on Islay

www.subbrit.org.uk/sb-sites/sites/k/kilchiaran_chl/index.shtml

I wonder how close in terms of function and construction the two were...

A bit more info on the externals for Deerness Radar Station - apparently it was a \"Type 2\" www.radarpages.co.uk/mob/chl/chl1.htm

Internally, I haven\'t been able to find anything (yet).

According to www.rafweb.org/Stations/Stations_Scot.htm

Deerness was a CHL Type 31 Radar not a Type 2 as previously mentioned.

Was there an upgrade at some point?

Hello!
There was a very interesting talk given during the recent Aviation Festival here in Orkney, titled ‘Watching over the Flow: Radar in Orkney during World War 2′.
Ian Brown, curator of the National Museum of Flight, East Fortune, gave the talk, and would be a good person to consult - he's done a lot of work on the radar side of things up here.
