Comments: Nottingham is a relay of Waltham (line fed)

The Nottingham relay station is situated at Kimberley.

This transmitter can be received in many parts of Nottingham city and surrounding areas where reception of Waltham may be impossible due to hills and Sutton Coldfield would require a high-gain aerial. Many eastern parts of the city are unfortunately screened from this relay by tall buildings in the city centre.

The transmitter relays Waltham and was a phase I Channel 5 transmitter.

There are two RX logs receiving Waltham. The one in the photo above, behind the cellular aerials is a fair bit higher than the other. The outputs of the two are in fact combined. Doing this produces some very deep nulls in the Vertical Radiation Pattern, which are just what is required since this site suffered from incoming signal flutter caused by vehicles on the M1, which is just in the foreground of the RX aerials view.
