Comments: Henley-on-Thames is a TV relay of Crystal Palace. Pre-B700 allocations: 58/49/54.

Originally a BBC landlord site, TV channels 1 - 3 entered service on 10th January 1975, with Channel 4 from August 1984. DSO was on 4th and 18th April 2012.

Radio Berkshire was added on 21st January 1992 and ILR (2-Ten Radio) from 18th October 1996.

The picturesque town of Henley-on-Thames nestles in a valley at the very southern end of the Chiltern Hills in Oxfordshire. Henley-on-Thames is a 100W relay of Crystal Palace for TV, a 250W relay of Reading for BBC Berks and a 100W relay of Reading ILR.

The mast is located in woodland to the east of the town and is surrounded by trees, making photography rather difficult. There are the two sets of four UHF panels pointing north west and south west. The RX feed is a UHF log periodic pointing south east at Crystal Palace. The crossbow antennas for VHF radio are pointing west and north east, and are fed by a pair of horizontally polarised Band II yagis pointing south west towards Reading.
