With the sun shining, and having an hour free today I decided to pop over to Newent to get some sunnier pics of the FoDR transmitter. Upon arrival in the pub car park I discovered that it had gone, but tuning the car radio to 1503kHz confirmed that it was still broadcasting! I discovered that it had been moved to the other side of the community centre, and is visible from the B4215. I drove up to the entrance of the centre and there it was, parked on the grass! The view of the transmitter is now much better - I can confirm that it is mounted on a trailer, and that the trailer does have wheels. It's right up close against the perimeter fence, so I doubt that this site uses any ground radials (unlike Coleford, which I believe does). The back of the trailer also features Radica's website address!
