Abstract

The results of a site test at Morborne Hill, near Peterborough, are given. A Band I transmitter with a mean effective radiated power (e.r.p.) of 1.1 kW will provide a much improved service over most of the area but the overlap with the adjacent Crystal Palace and Holme Moss transmitters is inadequate in certain areas. A Band II transmitter with a mean e.r.p. of 11.3 kW will fill the gap in the service areas of the adjacent v.h.f. sound transmitters, with the exception of two areas. Of these areas, the larger, that in the south-west, may be served by the proposed Central Berks. v.h.f. transmitter.
