Comments: Slad is a relay of Mendip

The Slad TV relay is in the middle of some farmland, and to get the close-up photos I had to do a bit of'walking where I shouldn't'! Some of the photos were taken in the summer and some in the autumn, and it's amazing how the field changes from green to brown.

There is a mast visible on the horizon in acouple photos (to the left of the Slad mast) - this is the Stroud transmitter. Notice how Slad uses H pol for both RX and TX. Nailsworth uses the same channels vertically, so maybe this is done to minimise interference between the two.

Slad went into service with 3 UHF channels in October 1980, with Channel 4 added in November 1987. DSO was on the 24th March and 7th April 2010.
