What is the total height of this transmitter above sea level ie:- the bit that transmits the signal, not just the overall height of the mast. I'm hoping to try access the signal over here on Walney Island, Barrow-in-Furness

Cheers Dave, very helpful indeed.

I have a friend who wants an aerial fitting, who lives at North Scale, Walney Island. It's always been a tricky place for signal reception since the construction of Devonshire Dock Hall, almost in the town centre & directly between that village and Winter Hill. As you suggest there is Millom Park but they don't carry the full Freeview package. Although there is some land higher between Lacaster and Walney I'm hoping the height of the mast may get round this problem.

Got a decent wide band aerial to try out. If that gets anything half decent then I'll buy a quality group A antenna and push the signal through a mast head amp.

With Thanks
