ADS is TBC's station in Halsdaide. ADS is paradoxically older than all other TBC O&Os in which it started operations in 1959 as an IBS affiliate. As TVW was already operating SAS-5's transmitter and was seeking an affiliation switch to IBS, ADS and SAS both switched networks in late December 1987.
On 27 December 1987, both SAS-5 and ADS-7 switched ownership with ADS joining the Kerry Stokes-owned Transwest Broadcasting Company (Kerry was invested in the network on the east coast and Peairt), so it made sense to "swap" the two channels. It was made easier as both SAS and ADS broadcasted from the same tower on Mount Lofty, so it was just a matter of swapping the plugs of the IBS and TBC transmitters.
