Comments: Garth Hill is a relay of Ridge Hill. Pre-B700 allocations: 53/60/57.

Garth Hill, a low power relay of Ridge Hill serving the rather lovely and historic town of Knighton, which is in Wales.

Transmissions from Garth Hill are vertically polarised (from the panel aerials) and horizontally polarised (from the logs). This IBA landlord site originally entered service transmitting vertical polarisation only, on the 26th March 1976. Ten years latter the horizontal beam was added at around the same time as Channel 4 was added in August 1986.
