|Not much change at Lichfield, but some updated photos for the gallery.
|The old Channel 5 panels are still in situ.
|Along with Turners Hill, Lichfield was one of the launch transmitters for the Birmingham DAB multiplex in May 2000. It was 0.5 kW ERP, but under the local DAB build-out Lichfield was turned up to 2.5 kW ERP. I believe these are the original panels from when the Birmingham multiplex launched.
|From what I remember, the Derby multiplex went into service in November 2014. The log periodics point towards the Burton area. The Derby multiplex is 5 kW ERP from Lichfield, and it shows - it is receivable over a large part of the Midlands.
|Pre-DSO HD panels face towards Birmingham. I'm guessing there wasn't enough space on Sutton Coldfield, meaning they had to be put here?
|What I think are Oxford facing aerials.
|The ILR Sira points northwards towards Burton.
|My guess is that the dish on the left points towards Copt Oak, whereas the one on the right at Pye Green.
|FM aerial pointing towards Sutton Coldfield.
|View northwards towards the Peak District.
|Winshill Water Tower, the other transmitter for ILR South Staffordshire.
