KINGUSSIE

Kingussie

KIngussie was originally a low power Band I and Band II site - EP7/506 and EP7/5. Service date 19th December 1966.

The track did not go all the way to the site, there was an existing track which ended below the site and then you either carried equipment up to the building or if lucky drove up the side of the hill. There were steps up to the site with a handrail.

There were separate wooden poles for Receive and Transmit.

The tower was built for the UHF TV, (service date 28th July 1978), I think that initially the transmit antenna were left on the pole but a Band II transmit antenna was put on the tower once Band I had closed. The track was extended up to the site at that time.

The Transmit pole remained for some time, probably because it was too much hassle to remove.
