Heartland FM relocates Perth transmitter

Heartland FM has moved its Perth transmitter to Kinnoull Hill, with the aim of bringing a stronger signal to part of Perthshire.

Previously used by Perth FM, the transmitter site and license, with agreement from Ofcom, was taken over by Heartland FM two years ago when Perth FM ceased broadcasting.

“When transmitting regular programmes from Pitlochry, there has been the odd occasion where the signal has dropped below usable levels, resulting in brief periods of silence in the Perth area,” the station said.

A relocation to the former BBC relay site on Kinnoull Hill, which has been out of commission for several years, has now been completed.

The station drafted in the help of the Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distirbution’s (SSEPD) Tree cutting team to trim back woodland surrounding the transmitter site.

Established in 1992 from Pitlochry, broadcasting on 97.5 & 106.6FM and online, Heartland is one of the longest running community owned radio stations in the UK.
