CAIRN PAT

The update list called for detailed photos. Hopefully, having been through a field full of cows, here they are.

Cairn Pat is the Stranraer area transmitter for West Sound. The site gets it's feed from Cambret Hill, which in turn gets it's feed from Riddings Hill near Dumfries. Ofcom data has this in service 5 December 1996, 2 days after Cambret Hill.

I find this area gets good signals from the Isle of Man and Northern Ireland.


Looks this way...






Transmit is from this single Sira band II antenna.
