Comments: Camlough is a TV and network FM relay of Divis

The shots of Camlough (below) have been taken from distance due to the fact that the site is inside the perimeter of an army base there on the mountain. There seems to be a variety of towers on this site used by both civilian services and military.

Camlough was originally a BBC landlord site which entered service in March 1995 with BBC FM radio. Downtown Radio was added in April 1997 and Five FM in December 2006. This site was a late addition to the UHF TV network in the late 1990's.




Since the photos above were taken the army has vacated the site leaving the mountain free to be
explored...




The two aerials on the left, at the bottom of this picture transmit Downtown Radio (103.1 MHz).


UHF transmit at the top with two tiers of Alan Dick & Co
band II circularly polarised panels below. These transmit
all the BBC and Five FM radio services.

This site is now included in the Update List for the following reason:
DAB facility added
