Comments: Jurby is a relay of Douglas and forms a Single Frequency Network with Beary Peark and Port St. Mary

Jurby is a Manx government site - broadcasters on site are Manx Radio (103.7), Energy FM (93.4) and Arqiva. Seperate antennas are used by Manx Radio and energy (see pictures). Manx Radio and Energy FM are both air-fed re-broadcast sites covering the north and west of the island. Both are fed from Snaefell with a reserve feed for Manx Radio coming from Carnane.

The UHF station is cable fed from Douglas (Carnane) and feeds the other northern transmitter sites (Ramsey and Kimmeragh). The Manx government use the site for TETRA.

There is also an "air-raid" siren which is part of the Isle of Man civil defence early warning system.

Ed has kindly allowed us a look at some of the gear on the ground too...
