Comments: Ambergate is a relay of Waltham

In analogue days, Ambergate was a 30W relay of Waltham, with ITV/C4 fed from Sutton Coldfield. The RX antenna on the left side of the tower in pic 5 points towards SC. Since DSO all services are sourced from Waltham. The ERP is now given as 37W, perhaps in an attempt to reduce the impact of moving from Group B to Group A?

The tower was quite new at the time of Richard's visit, having been replaced in February 2002.
