i know it's not the telecom cell site because that is located on top of the post office Building. the telecom guy told me that when he was wiring the site up for T3G that was a while ago

It's not a cellsite as there's no cells on the tower to send signals to your mobile phone/device.

It looks like a relay tower.

And, as it is smack-beside the railway line, where Kiwirail have national transmission using fiber laid up and down NZ, I suggest Kiwirail use it:

I'm guessing that the two large dishes in this photo:

point towards north (Picton-way) and South-East (Montana wineries / hills).
