Local TV added - August 2017

Three changes have happened at Oliver's Mount since Mark Smith visited in May 2012. The UHF cylinder was replaced in October 2016 in preparation for 700 MHz band clearance, aerials for local TV were added in July 2017 and I understand that Yorkshire Coast Radio is now being transmitted from the band II panel aerials, together with all the BBC services.

The new UHF cylinder at the top looks very clean and shiny. All of Oliver's Mount DTT channels are in the 700 MHz band, which is to be cleared by 2020. The replacement channels are expected to be in the
range UHF 29 - 37.

Two tiers of crossed shrouded log periodics have been added for local TV. The service date was 25th July 2017, according to Digital UK.

Local TV radiation pattern template. From Ofcom documentation.

Interleaved band II, FM radio and band III, DAB radio transmit aerials. Now transmitting all radio services.

The Sira band II aerial which was used by Yorkshire Coast Radio still in place above the
UHF trough. Ofcom data still shows YCR being transmitted from this aerial (Aug 2017).

UHF receive troughs. Upper and left on Emley Moor. Lower and right on Belmont. These are still in use for RBS, should the primary line feed fail.

BBC FM radio RBL receive aerials. The band II log periodic for the 4 national service on Holme Moss. The twin, 6 element Yagis on Acklam Wold, for Radio York. The right Yagi is somewhat lost against the tower steelwork.
