Photos taken 19th July 2011

The Margate relay is located on the roof of 'Invicta House' - a tower block located in an area known locally as 'Northdown'.

It's extremely difficult to photograph due to local topograpghy and the equipment being mostly screened by.. erm.. screens...

At DSO (scheduled 2012) Margate will become SFN with Dover and a significant increase in ERP is also planned. Permission for a new, more prominent, antenna has also been requested.

Overview of the roof, showing the relative positions of the broadcast equipment.

The TX logs are on the Western wall, the RX the Southern - looking at Dover.
