Anyone know why this transmitter has such a high power radiation pattern down towards the South?

Richard Cooper: It's all a bit of a mystery. The narrow beam that is aimed towards the South is pretty much all served by Winter Hill anyway ... so it seems odd that it is needed? I just have never been able to get my head around why it is so powerful toward the South!

Chris Barker: I half agree with you, but your interpretation of the coverage area is very off the mark. Have a look at the transmitter locations on the map above.

You say SDL isn't available in Northern England.

Have you heard of the Winter Hill and Emley Moor transmitters before?

Virtually the whole of Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Cheshire (certainly with a line of site) can receive coverage from Winter Hill

The television aerial at my parent's place has been there ever since the start of transmissions from the Saddleworth transmitter (1969 I think) so that's 46 years and the aerial has never once packed in.

Very very rarely would an aerial give up due to 'age'; it's more about the physical state of it overtime.
