May 2011

On soggy ground next to the River Nene - presumably not suitable for housing or other purposes due to flood risk, but probably ideal for an MF site.

This appears to be a simple mast radiator. The transmitter building is on slightly higher ground further back from the river.


A further site reference number appears on an Arqiva sticker on the door, possibly 53210


Plenty of options for a feed, but some may be redundant now...










In this view we see the MF mast on the right, with a Band II yagi directed at the VHF site across town.


Half an element isn't going to make much difference. Oh, but Northampton VHF doesn't carry any services which would be useful as a feed, does it? Must be a "legacy feature".




The mast seems to be a long way from the transmitter building in this view!


This piece of broadcast history was found nearby...


...which also explains this...


...some of the distribution cabling is still in place - but this one has sagged and now chafes against the edge of the roof
