This is the Independent Radio AM transmitter mast at Peasmarsh, serving Guildford and Surrey. At the time the photo above was taken, around 1987, it was broadcasting 'County Sound Radio' on 1476 kHz with an EMRP of 500W. The frequency has recently been changed to 1566 kHz and consequently the power increased to 800 watts to take into account the greater losses at this slightly higher frequency.

We're really not sure what the RX aerial on the building is doing. It's pointing straight at the mast. The only thing
would be if it was an old aerial for receiving some other feed from further away. It's pointing roughly East, though, and County Sound's studio is North. Who knows!
