Comments: Dover Town is a relay of Dover

August 2009

The site is on the side of the hill and presumably serves those bits of Dover which can't get a direct signal from, er, Dover. Easy to find, at the end of a row of houses, most of which have no visible television antenna. VP yagis are, however, quite common in the roads further down the valley.

The low cloud meant the mast at Dover was virtually invisible but I don't imagine there is much problem getting an adequate signal from the parent station. A single HP log has been selected for this task.

Tx is from six pairs of crossed logs. The rest of the tower has the expected mobile phone stuff, but not a lot else - there are plenty of other sites for PMR on the top of the hill.

Originally an IBA landlord site, TV channels 1 - 3 entered service on 31st March 1978, with Channel 4 from September 1985. DSO was on 13th and 27th June 2012.
