THE TRANSMISSION GALLERY

HATCH BOTTOM

Photos by Dan Glover Page last updated: 2015-08-18

August 2013, updated August 2015

This single-channel relay closed down at DSO in March 2012. The antennas were still in place when Dan visited on a bright day in August 2013. Two years later they are still on the tower

The site is surrounded by trees - no easy way to see the tower from a distance - but footpaths and tracks pass each side of the compound


The site number is 10853 - consistent with historical Ofcom data and as a relay of Rowridge


Against the bright sky, four vertically-stacked logs for transmit and two horizontally-bayed to receive Rowridge. All horizontally polarised since this was for the benefit of those using Hannington for reception




The relay was most likely the green cabinet in the centre - a similar style was used at Hythe (Hants)


Seen from the "other side" on a dull and damp day in August 2015 - antennas still in place
