Comments: High Wycombe is a TV relay of Crystal Palace
   
The town of High Wycombe is located in a valley at the southern end of the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire. High Wycombe is a tv relay of Crystal Palace and a relay of Wrotham for network radio.

There are two stacked slant polarisation Band II antennas clustered on all four faces of the mast just underneath the UHF cylinder. RX feeds are provided by a pair of UHF log periodics pointing at Crystal Palace, with a stacked pair of Band II log periodics just above pointing approximately in
the same direction at Wrotham, both to the south east.

The feed for the recently introduced BBC 3CR is more of a mystery as there are no antennas pointing in any northerly direction. A pair of log periodics can clearly be seen pointing south west towards Henley and Reading, but their purpose is also a mystery as the only transmitters in
that direction are a network FM relay at Hemdean, and Radio Berkshire's masts at Henley and Fountain House. Perhaps someone in the know can shed some light on this.

When Frazer Peddle visited the site there was work going on - tower painting?
