DSO (6) - the old UHF stack has been removed

It's February 2010 and we can see the DSO work is progressing...

The old Marconi slot antennas and the GRP shroud have been removed (the shroud you can see stacked up) and left the top of the mast bare ready for the addition of more metal. The new mast now contains the full top antenna, and some new panels below for the DTT service. Obviously, with the antenna now removed from the old mast, the new one is in use. All the kit is there for them to start the next stage of the work. New stay blocks have already been added, to cope with what I assume is extra mast height.
