With a ground height of 524m (1719ft), the station is the highest elevated main transmission site in the UK.
The present transmitter was erected in 1984 and is a "guyed mast" structure which is 228m in height. Not so high as Belmont but combined with it`s elevated site, Holme Moss has an overall aerial height of 758m (a.g.l) above sea level.
It provides VHF coverage of both FM and DAB to a wide area around the transmitter including Derbyshire, Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire. When originally erected it also transmitted television signals, which travelled much further than their intended service area. They were received on the Isle of Man and in parts of the Irish Republic, mainly Dublin and Wicklow. Emley Moor (55.44, 15.53 km) and Moorside Edge (348.22, 11.56 km) transmitters can be seen from the location.
