DAB added - October 2015

BBC DAB entered service on 30th May 2014. The other notable change is with the UHF receive aerials. Gone is the single log periodic that was pointing towards The Wrekin. All 3 multiplexes now relay Ridge Hill. The receive aerials for this has been upgraded from 2 to 4 log periodics.

Round to the other side of the tower and the DAB aerials come into view.

The DAB band III transmit aerials.

DAB satellite receive dish and cabin behind, with the now familiar, GPS cone aerials.

At the back of the dish we have a Norsat LNB, 12.25 - 12.75 GHz. The other round device will be a dehydrator, to keep the moisture out of the waveguide.

UHF transmit and receive. Receive upgraded from 2 to 4 logs. Note that the second from the left, horizontal receive log has an element missing. Second from the front on the side facing the camera.

The Radio Shropshire band II transmit aerial is the end fed dipole (white pole), at the very top of the tower.

The service area. Church Stretton.
