This morning I joined Big Alan and Ash on the roof of the main building at Park Community School to give some assistance in the setting up of the new DAB aerial that will be used to boost the coverage of the whole multiplex to the Leigh Park and Havant areas. We owe thanks to Alan and Ash for all the help and hard work that they are putting in to support us. Out of interest if you zoom in on the last photo you will recognise 'The Hub' building which is on the roundabout at the end of Dunsbury Way, just around the corner from our studio. As you see we will get a great DAB signal at the studio when this system is up and running.
There is still a lot of work for Alan to do before it all goes live. The transmission equipment needs setting up in the room below the hatch, then Alan will be working with the school's IT department to sort out an internet feed from Fort Widley.
Finally the Fort Widley and Park School signals need to be sequenced so they can work together in areas where both signals are receivable at the same time, rather than cancel each other out.
