DAB added - August 2017

Band III DAB aerials have been added to the mobile phone tower at Barrow. BBC DAB entered service at Barrow on the 27th August 2015.

These pictures were taken in the morning from a footpath that runs next to Mill Beck, a small river to the east of the site. A rather overgrown footpath that runs northeast of the site placed the masts with the sun directly behind. A site best photographed later in the afternoon.

Two tiers of band III dipoles for DAB radio at the top of the mobile phone tower. Ofcom data indicates that these aerials produce a cardioid pattern with maximum ERP to the east.

The centre of the wires strung between the two masts. I had expected to see two vertical wires attached here, but not in this instance. Clearly Barrow MF is not at T-aerial.
