Here's another clue to what goes on here - there's a Cellnet logo on the side of this brick building. This must be a mobile phone point of presence.

Various paging equipment is installed here too.

A warning sign on the side of the main mast - "Do not climb this mast." There was other text, but being a duffer I never thought to take a shot in high quality mode on the digital camera. sub-TV Image

The masts themselves are a dominant presence in the city - they are visible for miles around, particularly if you travel south down the A500.

There are more transmitters at Mike Brown's Ether.net.
There's loads on the Lichfield mast and tower over on Bob Cotton's Lichfield Memories.

There is a page with some information about an American transmitter here.

Many thanks to David Harrison for some information on these pages.
