New main UHF aerial - October 2017

In preparation for 700 MHz band clearance the main UHF transmitting aerial has recently been replaced at Heathfield.

This picture shows all of the transmitting aerial systems. The new main UHF aerial at the top with wrap around reserve below the top platform and Band II FM radio below that. The UHF panels on the left hand side (99m mean level), were used to transmit pre-DSO DTT. At the bottom is the band III DAB transmit aerial used to transmit all three DAB services.

Further round, this is the view from the site entrance.

Note that there are no dipoles on the south facing panel.
