Comments: New station commissioned for B700 clearance.

February 2020

Ashford is a new Dover relay added as part of the 700 MHz band clearance programme. It transmits on the same channels as Dover forming a single frequency network, and with horizontal polarisation. The BBC A multiplex went into service on 21st August 2019, with the other five multiplexes added on 16th October 2019.


International House which is opposite Ashford International railway station.


Nothing obvious on the side as a UHF TV transmit aerial, but there is a familiar UHF log periodic pointing towards Dover towards the right of this picture.

Round to the west facing side of International House.


Close up and a more familiar aerial comes into view on the left side of this picture.


This type of slot UHF transmit aerial has been used to transmit local TV at Pontop Pike and Mendip. There is a link at the foot of this page to the AlanDick super slot TV antenna.


Further round and a ladder comes into view.
