Comments: Hammersmith is a TV relay of Crystal Palace; also previously used for ILR OnFM on 101.4 MHz

Updated June 2006

This West London relay is located on top of the former Citibank building, next door to the Lyric Theatre. The tx aerial is 4 bow-tie dipoles. The RBL antenna is not obvious from ground level...






By the time of Robert's visit, Citibank had vacated the building, which is now known as One Hammersmith Grove. Their corporate sign has now been removed.






The TX bowties are facing west, with a log periodic RX on Crystal Palace to the south east of the site.




Looking south east from the site towards central Hammersmith


Looking south east, Croydon transmitter visible. Crystal Palace is just to the left, behind the plastic shrouded building


Looking south towards the Thames and Fulham


Looking north west towards Wembley Stadium




Looking east. The tube lines run adjacent to the north side of the transmitter building. Here they can be seen disappearing into the tunnel on the approach to Hammersmith station, with the TX just right of frame. The abandoned viaduct used to connect Ravenscourt Park station to the now closed Grove Road station.


Looking west. The middle two lines are the Picadilly line, which heads out towards Heathrow. The outer lines are the District line heading towards Ealing Broadway and Richmond. The station is Ravenscourt Park.
