Temporary UHF mast - August 2021

Following the fire at Bilsdale on 10-Aug-2021 the BT site at Arncliffe Wood now has a temporary mast erected to restore UHF TV services to the areas around Darlington, Barnard Castle, Richmond, Leyburn, Catterick, Masham and Ripon.

These pictures were taken during the morning of 20-Aug-2021 and transmissions commenced later in the day.

BT Arncliffe Wood with a new taller mast.

These two satellite dishes will provide the programme feeds for the three PSB multiplexes. The two BBC muxes are on the Intelsat at 27.5° West. D3&4 on Astra 2.

The antenna, which I understand is horizontally polarised, omni directional. This just needs lifting to the top of the mast.

The crane arrives.

On its way up.
