Transmit and receive aerial changes

The transmit antenna has been replaced at Peterlee for 700 MHz band clearance. The channel changes were implemented in November 2019. As a consequence of the fire at Bilsdale in August 2021, the receive aerial has been swung round to receive Pontop Pike.

The first picture was taken by Justin Dobson in September 2021

The remainder of the pictures were taken by Martin Brown in August 2022.

The site is behind a row of houses next to some allotments.

The receive aerial now pointing at Pontop Pike.

The new transmit antenna.

116.22, the original site number as a Bilsdale relay.

All of the nearby houses have aerials facing Bilsdale.
