THE TRANSMISSION GALLERY

PORTSLADE

Photos by Dan Glover Page last updated: 2012-10-17

July 2010, updated October 2012

As noted in Dick Coppen's photos from 2002, the original wooden pole was been replaced by a slightly taller and more substantial affair, now including a GSM site share.

By October 2012 the original equipment enclosure had been replaced, but this seems to be the only change for DSO


The sign had faded somewhat in the sunshine - and the replacement enclosure is unlabelled


2010: The broadcast arrangements appear unchanged but the compound now hosts a couple of additional cabinets.


2012: New cabin, same pole and antennas. Different weather


For transmit an arrangement of 4 + 1 logs, as before.


There are two VP logs for receive - maybe some difficulty in receiving a clean feed at this site?




2010: the original enclosure, on the left, showing signs of age...


2012: DSO-style replacement and feeder ladder




The site is on high ground near the eastern portal of the Southwick Hill Tunnel on the A27


The intended service area is in a hollow, across the main road.
