New transmit aerial - December 2017

The transmit aerial at Assendon was replaced on the 16th Novemeber 2017 in preparation for 700 MHz band clearance. The open 4 tier cardioid has been replaced with a shrouded type. The UHF channel allocation at Assendon will change from 59/55/50 to 29/31/37 on the 21st March 2018.

This site is quite challenging to photograph with a huge contrast difference between the white transmit cylinder in the sunshine, and the rest of the mast in very shaded woodland.

Left, Robert Whittaker's picture from 2006. Right, December 2017.
The mast hasn't got shorter, just the trees that have grown taller.

The Crystal Palace receive log periodic looks unchanged.

This picture shows the problem of the limited contrast ratio a camera can handle.

The view towards Middle Assendon and Lower Assendon remains the same.
