The antenna is round the corner from the main entrance to Eliot College, on the north wing of the building. Although the radiation pattern is presumably omnidirectional, the site is not quite at the top of the hill. Other buildings on campus, and woodland beyond, limit coverage to the north. There is, however, a good "take off" to the south, across the city and beyond. The presence of LBC (97.3) limits coverage to the west.

When I was a student here 25 years ago, UKC Radio operated on 999kHz using a loop around the roof of each college, with Rediffusion pairs linking the buildings to a central transmitter located in Eliot. This was supposed not to radiate beyond the site boundary - in practice the coverage around campus was patchy. In those days news was received off-air from LBC via a yagi on the roof. Now it seems to be sourced from Sky. The new station also has studios at Canterbury Christ Church University, which is at the bottom of the hill.
