Comments: Blaenavon is a relay of Wenvoe for both TV and radio
 
Blaenavon

The site is mid way between Blaenavon and Abersychan on the road that goes down the valley.

The trek up to the site was a killer - took 25 mins to get up, took 15 to get down!

Once up there the views were outstanding. Had a feeling I was being watched when taking the pics, there was a flock of sheep up there looking at me daft!

Blaenavon is a rather more interesting and strategic site than it first appears. As well as being a standard relay for Blaenavon there is also a service from this site on a second set of channels. It's believed that the channels used for the Blaenavon Link service are 39/45/49/42 - the same as those used at nearby Abergavenny. It's also understood that the link service exists to provide an RBL feed for downstream relays Pontypool and Usk.
