The photo above [slightly retouched] was taken by Colin Dalziel and shows the original aerial arrangement at Meldrum. Note the super turnstile Band I (ch4) aerials at the top and the "standard" 8 tier cylindrical slot aerial for Band II. Colin recalls that reception from this site was difficult on the southern side of Aberdeen: " I remember we had a 3 element folded yagi for the Band 1 and still the pictures were grainy!!"
