Installation of Quay FM November 2014

Fort Albert is an abandoned fortification on the Channel Island of Alderney, much of which dates from WWII. It is a high point which overlooks Braye Bay and the settlements of Braye & Newtown. Fort Albert was chosen as the site for a relay of Island FM, the Guernsey based commercial station. In 2014 Quay FM, the Alderney community station installed its own transmission system at the site.

The Island FM antennas. The folded dipole is for transmit and the yagi receives a barely adequate signal from Les Touillets on Guernsey.

Quay FM share a telegraph pole on top of the fort. The pair of antennas provide a circularly polarised signal. The link dish can be seen in the background, which is on top of the transmitter room. The transmitter room used to be the toilets during WWII. The studios are in Braye, across the bay.
