|Originally an IBA landlord site, UHF TV on 3 channels commenced on 3rd November 1972. Channel 4 was added in May 1984 and Channel 5 was available from the launch on 30th March 1997. DSO was on 4th and 18th August 2010.|
ILR Perth (Radio Tay) launched on 14th November 1980.
The Perth relay is located right next to the M90 motorway and only a stone's throw away from towers at Kirkton Mailer.
|The panels about 3/4 up the tower (35m) were for Channel 5, with an omni-directional radiation pattern. The main UHF cylinder is a north-east facing cardioid.|
|On the left, above the Channel 5 panels can be seen the ILR vertical dipole and horizontal loop aerials. ILR Perth (Radio Tay) launched 14th November 1980.|
On the right are the two UHF trough RBL aerials for Craigkelly. These were used for BBC 1 & 2. Slightly higher up, you can just make out the back of the RBL trough aerials for Angus, which was used by ITV & Channel 4, and now used for all 3 DTT multiplexes.
