The CulDrose pronunciation irritant is just parochialism as are the non-local's usual efforts at Mousehole, Launceston, Fowey etc. Just put it down to 'grumpy old man' syndrome.
Radar positioning? The only reason I can think of for putting it there is weight concentration close to the mast/CG. My limited exposure to the SK was mainly in the initial stages of winch trials at Boscombe and as a machine intended for THAT specialist role, it seemed to me that there was room for improvement - but that is a universal 'given'.
