THE TRANSMISSION GALLERY

|The "miniature" nature of this site is quite striking - it's as though everything is at eye-level. |
Visited early December 2010 a few days after snow, and with plenty of ice still on untreated roads.
We have been informed that the new cylinder is in fact a stacked Band IV/V arrangement to allow for the relatively wide range of allocations used. Post-DSO all multiplexes are transmitted from the cylinder.
|Someone has been working. What is it (on the left) which doesn't need to be worn here?|
|Initially it seems nothing has changed.|
|Band II, Band III, Band IV, Band V, all present and correct. That cylinder is almost glowing in the bright sunshine.|
I originally thought one of the Band II logs would be on Sutton Coldfield and the other (for BBC C&W) on Meriden - but that doesn't seem to tie in with the way the troughs are aligned.
|Compared to Mark Carver's photo from 2009 this looks like it's brand new.|
