Comments: West Wilts DAB changed frequency (from 12D) on 23rd October 2015.

Started life in the 1980s as a combined FM and MF site for West Wiltshire ILR service, Wiltshire Radio. The BBC added an FM transmitter for their local radio service a few years later, and later again DAB services were established on the shorter mast.

Peter Bigwood visited the site first, then Wayne Brewer in Sept 2010, and finally Mark Carver in June 2012. Nothing seems to have changed between the three visits, so this page shows a mixture of shots from all three contributors.
