Bilsdale Quarry temporary mast - November 2021

Following the fire within the Bilsdale mast on 10-Aug-2021, a temporary mast has been constructed about 500m southwest of the main site. This temporary mast is known as Bilsdale Quarry and went into service with seven TV muxes and the three national DAB muxes on 13-Oct-2021.

Four tiers of UHF transmit panel aerials which I estimate are facing roughly 160 and 340 degrees.
