Comments: Temporary site following the suspension of services from Bilsdale.

New Freeview Tx - September 2021

Following the major fire at Bilsdale on 10 August 2021, temporary Freeview transmitters were installed at this existing tower on 8 September 2021 to reinstate PSB services to some areas south of Bilsdale.

Arqiva have used an existing tower at Dialstone Farm 1km north of the Sutton Bank Visitor Centre to host this temporary Tx. This first view of the tower is looking north. The new Tx panels can be clearly seen around two-thirds of the way up on the RHS. The UHF transmit panels are facing approximately southwest and southeast.

A closer view of the Tx panels.

Tx equipment container and DAST dishes for PSB mux programme feeds.

Generators for the new Tx.

The fire-ravaged Bilsdale mast still standing some seven miles away.

Not long for this world it seems :-(
