New transmit aerials - January 2022

The original 4 tier open cardioid transmit aerial was replaced at Castleton for 700 MHz band clearance as the transmit channels were moved from band V to band IV. These changes were implemented on 13-Nov-2019. Following the fire at Bilsdale in August 2021 a horizontal beam has been added to the northeast, in the direction of the village of Danby. The Freeview website gives an ERP of 3W for the HP beam. VP remains at 2W ERP.

The satellite dishes were added to provide the programme feeds following the fire at Bilsdale.
