THE TRANSMISSION GALLERY

THRUMSTER

Photos by Peter Bigwood

From 15-Dec-1958 Thrumster broadcast BBC1 405-line tv to Thurso and NE Scotland but the station has been devoid of broadcast services since 405-line transmissions ceased in 1985. Thrumster also carried BBC VHF national radio from 1 Mar 1960 until the switch to mixed polarisation on the move to Rumster Forest. 

As you can see from the NGW sign it remains a Maintenance Base for the region, which includes the Orkney and Shetland Isles. Perhaps it also provides part of the programme feed link to Orkney too... can anyone confirm?

The aerial cluster at the top is a navigation beacon.
