|Here are some pictures of Selkirk after DSO work.|
I wasn't too keen of going too near the site given the on-site security but I hope the mast photos are of some use.
|The broadcast stuff on the mast appear to be as follows from the top:|
Main DTT antenna (234 m agl)
Ch5 analogue antenna (216 m agl)
Old trough antenna for BBC analogue RBS from Black Hill (213 m agl)
Wrap-around DTT reserve antenna (205 m agl)
FM array for Radio Borders and Classic FM
DAB array for BBC and D1 (167 m agl)
There appears to be a shrouded yagi between the FM and DAB arrays,I think this was (is) a studio link to Radio Borders at Galashiels.
|Just below the mobile phone array / lower set of aerial lights note the two FM yagis pointing towards Caldbeck for Classic FM RBL.|
|You can see the Classic FM RBL aerials are not too high above the buildings.|
The building behind the mast is fairly new (within 10-15 years) I suspect this held the pre-DSO Freeview service.
The brown brick building in the centre was the original ITA building for the Ch13 405-line VHF
|We've zoomed in on Sam's pictures which give useful detail of the six tier DAB antenna. (Kathrein panels)|
