Comments:

The Dundry site is located on a ridge of hills just to the south of the City of Bristol. It transmits GWR FM to North Somerset, South Gloucestershire and Bristol itself. The radiation pattern is directional, mainly to the north and north east. The close up of the transmitting aerials shows an array of two pairs of horizontal yagis pointing just west of north, and north east respectively. The vertical component is provided by two vertical yagis pointing just east of north, towards the centre of the transmission area. This is presumably limited to the rear by a mast null. I have no idea what the wierd "candelabra" style antennae are on the top of the mast - any ideas anyone?

There are a total of seven masts on Dundry hill, all within the space of a mile or so, so finding the right mast was not as straightforward as usual. This was compounded by a lack of any signage at the site! The DAB services for the area are from a different mast, Dundry East while BBC R Bristol and Original 106 are broadcast from the East Dundry Lane tower a short distance away.
