The transmissions are vertically polarised only, and came on air on 11-Oct-2005

The yagi antenna (above) receives the 103.2 MHz transmissions from the Bunkers Hill site, which is only 5 miles away, and is mounted on the north side of the water tower at a bearing of 347 ETN

The transmission antenna system is mounted on the west side of the water tower, providing some protection to the co-channel (96.2 MHz) transmissions from Stody

The dipoles are in a phased arrangement with both elements driven, producing the polar pattern shown below...
