Spur Hill transmitter
This broadcast transmission site is located to the south of the city of Cork, Ireland, just north west of Cork airport, it has a cable-stayed mast 60m tall on an elevation of 137m ASL. The transmitter was initially opened in 1965 as a VHF relay of the main Mullaghanish television transmitter in County Cork. Later, FM radio transmitters were also added providing a relay of the national radio channels, and more recently, digital radio broadcasting (DAB) was started from the site. On its conversion to UHF television transmission in 1996, it became the main transmitter serving Cork city, carrying the four Irish analogue channels, RTÉ One (Ch53), RTÉ Two (Ch57), TV3 (Ch60), and TG4 (Ch63) at an effective radiated power of 20 kW. On 24 October 2012 all analogue television transmission ended in Ireland, and the station now provides the Irish DTT service Saorview to Cork city and environs. It is owned and operated by 2RN, a subsidiary of the Irish national broadcaster RTÉ.
