TORTEVAL

Photos by Michael Curtis & Andrew Rogers Page last updated: 2013-06-01

Torteval, on the south west tip of Guernsey. The site was the first BBC TV link station for the Channel Islands which had receiving aerials for North Hessary Tor, Wenvoe and Rowridge.

Due to programming reasons the BBC developed a receiving system which allowed for near continuous reception of North Hessary Tor on channel 2 (Band I) off-air via a receiving system which nulled unwanted transmissions from other transmitters around Europe to improve reception of the North Hessary Tor transmission.
