|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.

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