THE TRANSMISSION GALLERY

|Chris comments: "Visiting Marazion I noticed the distant profile of this mast had changed, and spotted that DAB upgrades had added it to the hit-list, so off I went... Having recently visited St Erth Canons Town, my greatest surprise was the DAB setup: SHF feed from Redruth instead of satellite, and end-fed antenna."|
Editor's note: we understand the new pole was installed for DSO.
|On approach, the first immediate change has been the loss of the timber telegraph pole, to be replaced with this all-metal affair.|
DAB is from the black colinear at the top.
|TV relay arrangements are the same as before, with the lower receiver aerial facing Redruth, and upper transmissions aerials aimed toward the nearby village of Gulval, and more distant Marazion.|
|The DAB link antenna is the small dish on the right, above the TV receive log.|
|One new cabinet with GPS antennas for DAB. The cabinet on the left appears to be the original for the TV relay but refurbished and re-painted for DSO.|
The compound fencing has also been upgraded.
|TV service area to the East - Gulval on the left, and Marazion and St Michael's Mount in the distance, through the Cornish mizzle.|
DAB serves these, and most of the Penzance and Newlyn area to the West too.
