Comments: Grandtully is a relay of Angus (via Kenmore). Pre B700 allocations: 49/54/58.

May 2017

Grandtully was originally a BBC landlord site which entered service in September 1988.

At the end of the farm track is the cabin, but where are the aerials?

Round the back of the farm buildings I found the pole with transmit aerials.

Shiny new UHF transmit log periodics. They were replaced on 28th March 2017 in preparation for 700 MHz band clearance. But where is the receive aerial?

A couple of hundred metres up the hillside is a separate pole with the receive aerials. The Tx pole is on the far side of the farm buildings that can be seen through the gap between the trees.

Two 18 element Yagis to receive the programme feeds from Kenmore.

The grey box probably contains a pre-amp to compensate for the cable loss to the Tx cabin.
