Totley Rise Transmitter OS Grid Ref SK 322 807
Also see basic digital fault finding.
Switchover at Totley occurred in Aug 2011.
Totley Rise television transmitter started broadcasting in 1980 and is a relatively low power relay (or repeater) off Emley Moor (via Crosspool) which is "aimed" into the River Sheaf / Old Hay Brook valley. It is necessary because some of this area is shielded from Emley, Crosspool and Belmont by the hills (see ATV topography map).
Note that only the three basic PSB MUXES are transmitted from Totley, not all six of them.
However, what is transmitted is all within Totley`s original B group.
For Totley`s frequencies see its "Channel Allocation Guide". This information can
also be very useful in the diagnosis of co-
Totley mast can be difficult to see as it is hidden behind the trees of Poynton Wood, but it is actually situated just off Poynton Wood Glade. It looks just like a telegraph pole and is often mistaken for one !
