 The first ten images below were taken in May 2009.  They show the old and new mast together with the latter at full height including the main UHF antenna.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The following two images were taken in May 2011 and show the additional twelve-tier circulating UHF system which, in this instance, serves as the main antenna for the COM multiplexes rather than acting as a reserve for all PSB and COM services.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The next image shows some of the lower UHF aerials situated on the respective north-east corners of both masts.

The new mast (left) has two sets of panels for the Scottish PSB Multiplexes, the top set serving the BBC channels whilst the lower set serves the ITV Channels.

The panels on the old mast (right) provided the analogue Channel 5 service across the Carlisle area.

 

 

 

 

The final four images below were taken in May 2013 after the removal of the original mast.  The first two of these show the Scottish PSB aerial systems more clearly, with the upper set (BBC) based on two sets of eight-tier panels respectively facing north and north-east, whilst the lower set (ITV) has only one set facing only north-east.
