THE TRANSMISSION GALLERY

PLYMPTON

Having been frustrated at my inability to access the site from the west or north (RBL directions) a year ago, I had a proper look at the map and realised that there is easy public access from Hardwrick Wood via muddy paths.








The Caradon Hill RBL troughs don't seem to have been replaced.


BBC FM aerials


An inspection of the site via Google Earth suggests that this dish is looking at 27.5 deg W for the DTT back up feed.....


.... and presumably the smaller dishes are on 9 deg E for the DAB feed, not sure what the big dishes are pointing at - 16 deg E perhaps - maybe the old Channel 5 analogue feed?


Love these now-scarce RCA ILR aerials. Martin B has done some research and we think the only two other sites that still have them are Foxhall Heath and Kilvey Hill.


Here's the NHT FM RBL rx aerial.
