Emley Moor transmitting station

Coordinates: 53°36'44" N, 01°39'47" W ; Elevation: 256 m (840 ft); Tower height: 336 m (1102 ft)
Emley Moor is a supertall telecommunications and broadcasting station near village of Emley, in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England. The current tower is the third structure to have occupied the site. The original 135 metres (443 ft) lattice tower was erected in 1956 to provide Independent Television broadcasts to the Yorkshire area. It was replaced in 1964 by a taller 385.5 metres (1265 ft) guyed mast. On 19 March 1969, a combination of strong winds and the weight of ice that had formed around the top of the mast and on the guy wires brought the structure down. The new tower is build in 1969-1971 and at 336 metres this is the tallest free-standing reinforced concrete structure in Britain.

Moorside Edge transmitting station

Coordinates: 53°38'05" N, 01°53'42" W ; Elevation: 340 m (115 ft); Tower height: 158 m (518 ft)
Moorside Edge is one of the most powerful mediumwave radio transmitters in Britain at 200 kW effective radiated power. Formed of two 158 m steel lattice towers it is located just above Moorside Edge and is within 10 miles of both Holme Moss and Emley Moor transmitters. Both of the latter can be seen from the site and are SSE and ESE respectively. As with most MW transmitters a good "signal earth" is important and this is assured by the waterlogged nature of the ground on which it is built. The station is owned and operated by National Grid Wireless. Moorside Edge broadcasts BBC Radio 5 Live at 909 kHz, TalkSPORT at 1089 kHz and Absolute Radio at 1215 kHz.
