Comments: Findon is a relay of Rowridge. Sussex Coast DAB changed frequency from 11B 9th Dec 2015

Originally a BBC landlord site, TV channels 1 - 3 entered service on 24th April 1975, with Channel 4 from October 1985. DSO was on 7th and 21st March 2012.

DAB service dates: Sussex Coast, February 2004; BBC, 26th September 2014.

This is a very busy 35m tower for the village of Findon itself but all the mobile operators take advantage of this site as it has a good coverage of the main A24 road corridor where it passes between the South Downs.

Findon also formed part of the BBC's analogue TV feed link from Rowridge to Brighton Whitehawk Hill. Whitehawk Hill is now line fed, since DSO.

Our first three photos were taken by David Neale, more recently Barry Mung visited the site and took the final four.










Here we see the new post DSO UHF panels mounted above the original analogue panels. These new panels add a south-westerly beam, of much higher ERP.
