Comments: Rampisham UHF is a relay of Stockland Hill; the short-wave site was decommissioned in 2011, only the UHF TV relay remains.

The relay station is on the side of one of the HF towers right beside the southern perimeter fence.

To get to it you have to go about half a mile along a rather muddy public right-of-way that skirts the station and you have to look carefully at the masts to find which one has the relay station. A bit like trying to see which elephant has the flea on its side from 100

There are 4 sets of antennas on the left side of the left tower just above the trees. Look very carefully and you will see them.

The transmit antennas. Unusually these are horizontally polarised - maybe to minimise interference from Weymouth that uses the same channels with 2kW ERP from about 20 miles away. Possibly also Winterbourne
Stickland a bit further away with 1kW ERP.

The relay station does not cover Rampisham but rather the valley to the south of the station.
