Eitshal - after the fire

Eitshal had entered service with 3 UHF TV channels in July 1976, but in November 1981 there was a fire following lightning and the BBC1 and BBC2 equipment was destroyed.

BBC1 service was restored using this containerised emergency transmitter, BBC2 was restored using two 200 watt TWT amplifiers which were just about to be donated to a university.
