Comments: Crockerton is a relay of Mendip. Local DAB changed frequency (from 12D) 23rd Oct 2015. Pre-B700 allocations: 43/46/40.

By the time I reached the site, the light was failing fast so had to get snapping rapidly! This was not helped by the surrounding forest of tall densely packed pines.

Crockerton is a pretty large tower, dominated by mobile telephony antennas. The low power 64W TV TX comprises two pairs of vertical crossed log periodics pointing south west towards the villages of Crockerton and Longbridge Deverill. On the other side, a single vertical log periodic points east towards the village of Sutton Veny. The RX antenna is another log periodic pointing west towards Mendip.

A recent addition is the DAB antennas which now crown the structure. These transmit NOW Wiltshire to Warminster and environs at a power of 500W. The satellite receiving equipment for DAB can be seen on a cabin at the base of the tower.

Left: another fine example of ntl rebranding! They'll have to repeat the exercise now that they're calling themselves Arqiva!
