The X15 and X17 combined Band I and III arrays from Antiference came into their own in areas where ghosting was a problem and both channels had vertical polarisation. The ‘Antex’ X-shaped Band I aerial could be rotated independently of the Band III section. The Antex rejected signals from the side rather than from the rear, and it was often more a case of putting it broadside on to the offending gasometer or whatever than pointing it at the transmitter. The twin feeder linking the two arrays is clearly visible on this shot. The modern UHF aerial nearby gives an idea of the size of the X17.
