Comments: Skirmett is a relay of Crystal Palace. Pre-B700 allocations: 44/41/47.

Located up the valley from Henley on Thames, Skirmett serves the villages of Fingest, Hambleden, Mill End and Skirmett village itself in Buckinghamshire.

Judging by the plethora of receive antennas, reception of Crystal Palace is a bit of a problem in this area. There is an eighteen element yagi surmounting the pole, plus an array of four log periodics quite close to the ground. Transmissions are from eight vertical log periodics, four pointing south and four pointing north.

Skirmett entered service on 5th July 1985. DSO was on the 4th and 18th April 2012.
