Comments: Tidworth is a relay of Hannington

Photos taken 24/10/2010

Tidworth is a village about 5 miles west of Andover, located right at the edge of the Hannington, Rowridge and Mendip service areas. Tidworth is the last Hannington relay to be added to the gallery.

The relay is located to the west of the village, right next to the Tidworth Garrison army base. Access to the relay is via a paved tank road so extreme care is required when approaching, especially on target practice days!

Transmission is from two pairs of panels, one pair pointing south and the other pointing east across the village. RX is a single log periodic on Hannington.

Originally an IBA landlord site, TV channels 1 - 3 entered service on 3rd December 1976, with Channel 4 from June 1986. DSO was on the 8th and 22nd February 2012.
