Here are the photos of the Woolacombe mast. Sorry it was a bit misty the day we went out mast hunting. Typical.
According to published lists this relay bizarrely takes its feed from Redruth for ITV/Ch4; (but see note at foot of this page).
Below: it was a bit late in the day when Robert Webb visited but at least he had clearer weather...
|August 2013: Martin Brown has made enquiries about the feed arrangements of Woolacombe and has added the following comments:|
The commentary for the Woolacombe site (above) mentions it as being a relay of
Redruth for ITV/CH4. This is due to an error in the BBC / ITC
September 1997 Transmitting Stations booklet. The previous booklet
(January 1994) correctly assigns ITV/CH4 as a relay of Huntshaw Cross.
Woolacombe was originally built as a relay of Caradon Hill, hence the
station number 131.09.
BBC 1 & 2 were in fact also changed to RBL Huntshaw Cross on 2/12/2008, ahead of
DSO in July 2009.
