2006 and before

Strachur entered service with 3 UHF TV channels during September 1980, with Channel 4 from July 1986. BBC FM radio was added on 23rd February 1983, with Radio's 1 & 4 from 3rd December 1993.

Martin notes: "Originally there was a wooden pole for Band II and a lattice pole for TV. Later these were replaced for site sharers and a mobile phone company also built a site alongside"

Date unknown, showing the wooden pole for Band II and lattice pole for TV

By 2001 site sharers had been added to the "TV" structure...

...and a second pair of slant polarised dipoles had been added to the Band II pole

By 2005 the third structure had been added

The Band II pole is just out of view in this 2006 photo (ends of the dipoles just visible top left)
