Comments: Glenariff is a relay of Divis (via Larne, Cushendall and Cushendun). Pre B700 allocations: 49/54/58.

The Glens of Antrim, as stunningly beautiful as this part of the province is, looks a nightmare for television reception! I noticed, driving into small villages, aerials in small clusters on hills, a self help system on Cushendall. Couldn't figure out why there were horizontal aerials focused on the relay until I was driving out of the village and noticed the two large aerials on the hill adjacent the relay. Glenarrif was quite a find, the wooden pole had just been replaced. The old one was still at the site. The most significant thing is the Rx feed: Glenarrif fed by Cushendall and Cushendall fed by Cushendun which is in turn fed by Larne.

Glenariff was originally a BBC landlord site which entered service on the 15th November 1982.
