Mast viewed from the south east. Lowest aerial on left is the BBC FM RBL log looking at Ashkirk


From the north


From the east


One of the two pairs of UHF logs looking at Chatton


....and the other pair. Berwick until 2006 was fed from Selkirk for ITV/4, so one of the two pairs may date from then




UHF DTT Tx panels

Unknown, possible ILR RBL looking at Selkirk, but if so it should be VP


From another angle


Investigations indicate the ILR Tx should be a three element yagi, looking at Berwick centre at 15m agl. This (if you look closely) used to have three elements, and fits the other two parameters !


From the north east. There's some evidence that some BBC channels were fed initally, (or perhaps still are) from Chatton. If so one of the two yagis on the the left might be contenders. One is a folded dipole and reflector, the other a folded dipole and director


The BBC FM tx is quoted at 23m, and has a large null towards the north west, and max lobe at 150 degs. This dipole fits the bill


Slightly wider view from south
