THE TRANSMISSION GALLERY

KENDAL

Photos by Mark G7RJV Page last updated: 2016-04-10

Pictures taken 28 September 2011

Changes at Kendal have been internal rather than external on the tower. Since DSO, Kendal forms the main station in a Border TV sub region with Coniston, Crosthwaite, Grasmere, Hawkshead, Kendal Fell, Millthrop, Sedburgh and Windermere as relays.

The sub region allows the BBC to provide BBC 1 North West (Manchester) programming with ITV Borders England programming. Same services which were provided on analogue.

The radio changes since the earlier pictures are that Radio Cumbria is now transmitted, together with the 2 ILR services, from the slant polarised, 2 element Yagi near the top of the tower (44m). Changed 27/3/2009. Also BBC DAB ERP was increased from 200 W to 3.2 kW from 21/3/2007.
