Possible aerial site for RSL's
On 17th May Mike and Gordon plus one of our presenters John, visited the owner of a prominent windmill on the Wirral to discuss possibility of installing an aerial and transmitter system. Problems we have to consider are: how to does the transmitter connect to the studio? Microwave - do we use 5GHz or 2.4GHz systems. A pro spec 5GHz system cost at least £1000. Or do we use broadband but the location has rather flaky broadband with high contention from the ISP and there is no QOS on the link. Then there is cost of power, insurance, 24/7 access, security, what equipment needs to be at the remote site, what do we install it in, are there any planning permissions or regulations for the aerial etc.
