Comments: Ballycastle Forest is a relay of Limavady. Pre B700 allocations: 45/42/39.

The Ballycastle Forest transmitter is a relay of Limavady, and provides TV reception to the town of Ballycastle, on the north coast of Northern Ireland. The town is a population destination for tourists, being situated near to the Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and Rathlin Island.

Finding the transmitter was fairly easy, although on my visit, the access track was starting to look a bit overgrown!

BBC FM Radio is transmitted from a different site on the other side of town.

Ballycastle Forest entered service on the 17th November 1978, with Channel 4 from November 1984. DSO was on the 10th and 24th October 2012.


This site is now included in the Update List for the following reason:
