Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Beacon Hill transmitter area
Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
The Budleigh Salterton transmitter is said to be a Signal Frequency Network with Beacon Hill, but a relay of Stockland Hill. Is this not an oxymoron?
The service area overlaps with Beacon Hill, according to the coverage maps on this site. So in order for it to work it must be an SFN. So, surely it must be a "relay" of Beacon Hill and line fed in order that it be in sync.
The mb21 Gallery shows there's a single horizontally-polarised log pointing in the direction of Stockland:
