|Rye was originally established as a BBC 1, 405-line, VHF channel 3 relay of Crystal Palace. The site became a UHF relay of Dover, entering service in October 1982. Channel 4 was available from the start on 2nd November 1982.|
DSO plans show Rye in the Heathfield "transmitter group".
|When the 405-line relay was established (1968) the site used three wooden poles, configuration unknown. In preparation for DSO all three will be removed and a steel stucture installed.|
A bird scarer has been added half way up the pole and there's still the apparently redundant bracket just above the rx antenna.
|The planning documents show the single rx log being replaced by a (bayed) pair - however the bearing given is still for reception of Dover.|
