THE TRANSMISSION GALLERY

MONKSILVER

Photos by Mervyn Mugford Page last updated: 2011-07-16

Since DSO.

As I was passing I stopped to get some better photos especially the transmit aerials which were listed as being in need of updates with more detail. Monksilver is now more important and provides a feed to Washford. Several of the relays along this part of the North Somerset/Devon coast seem to have had problems caused I think by tidal effects as the signal from Mendip crosses Bridgwater Bay.


Site signage


I revisited Monksilver while the oilseed rape was flowering as it was listed as needing an update


This panel has appeared under where the twin yagis are and facing towards Mendip so presumably some sort of trough panel.


The twin yagis are still there as is also the single log which I am sure points to Stockland Hill.


The transmit aerials are now seen to be clearly crossed logs.


The data gives Monksilver as being satellite feed for BBC Mux.
