Upper Hale Radio Station
GB3HV is located in the village of Upper Hale at an old government communications site which was also part of the Farnborough Research facilities. Link to GB3HV's exact location on Google maps.
We, and our landlord, would like to know about the history of the site, and if you can help with information we would be interested in hearing from you.
Upper Hale is a real "bump" of high ground making it a very good all round radio site. If you need proof of that, there are 6 other radio masts, including GB3FN, within 1 mile making it a challenging radio environment! The viewing platform at the top of the 90ft tower has good all round views including Wembley Arch, the Gerkin, Shard and Canary Wharf. The Hogs Back (A31) is clearly visible with good paths to GB3BA and GB3BH.

The site is currently the home of Tech Recycle who are IT recycling specialists.
As well as disposing of unwanted equipment in a environmentally friendly way they also re-cycle desktop PCs and Laptops.
If you are looking for a keenly priced PC it's well worth giving Alex or Gary a call - and don't forget to mention Noel and the TV club when you do!
