Warrington School, Saturday 16 January: Blueskin Bay FM broadcasters
and several roped-in helpers hoisted the radio mast on the roof of a
school building. The mast has a total height of 15m and this height
will help the very low 500-milliwatt power of the transmitter to reach
most parts of Blueskin Bay.
The transmitter was switched on to transmit a silent carrier signal on
88.2MHz. The station plans to make its first broadcast in February.
The helpers, from left: (on roof) Patrick Moody, Peter Dowden, Mike
McAlevey, Brent Bell; (on ground) Aaron Bell, Elliot Lyon, Lois
Skellett, Miya el-Dessouky. (Absent: Chris Skellett, who was taking
