Sheffield (MW) Radio Transmitter   OS Grid Ref SK 348 849


Sheffield (MW) may well qualify as one of the oldest transmitter "masts" in the country. One end utilises the old chimney from the boiler house for Heeley swimming pool which was built from 1907 and opened in 1909. Incidentally it cost £14,000. And that included Ladies and Gents slipper baths, and a laundry ! If one could still get a 25 yard swimming pool for that now I`d buy one....  Thus this picture combines two of my four great interests

in life, swimming and television transmission. The other two are railways and my wife, not, necessarily, in that order.  

Radio Sheffield puts out 1 kW of MW at 1035kHz and whilst talking to a chap at the pool he complained that it interferes with some of the phones. He moaned that "all we get out of them is bloody Praise Or Grumble" (one of the programmes) ! Interestingly the TX is not at any great height. At the MW frequency which it transmits on, "line of sight" is not so vital, in fact Andy (a "Radio Ham") assures me that a good signal earth is more important.

Thus explaining why many MW TX`s are located near rivers or wetlands.
