Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Heathfield transmitter area
Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
Seem to be erecting new pole/mast here in East Dean next to old pole which had old 4 (analogue ?) aerials at top with one receiving aerial from Heathfield (?). New pole has metal plate with a big hole in it -- presumably to mount aerials on top (?) and there are now two receiving aerials on old mast -- doesn't make sense ??
Any ideas ?
