Comments: Alderney is a TV relay of Fremont Point, although BBC A and BBC B changed to being line fed in Oct 2015. Pre B700 allocations: 49/60/55.

The Alderney site used to play a major part in bringing tv pictures to the Channel Islands, hence the unusual array of 4 SABRE receiving aerials which are aligned on the mainland transmitter at Stockland Hill.
You can read more about this arrangement here

These days there ia a fibre-optic link to the islands. Much of the equipment we see installed on the Alderney mast is therefore now redundant, but certainly no less interesting for that.

The relay tramsmits from a conventional stack of cardiode dipoles mounted at the top of the mast. Would any tx-listers like to speculate on the functions of any of the other ironmongery?
