Earlier pictures

Sunshine Radio have used a site in this vicinity, near Ludlow, for AM broadcasting for many years, even before the station obtained a licence! In 1982, when the legal ILR station, Radio Wyvern, was preparing to go into programme service many of the new Wyvern employees would ring up Sunshine Radio for requests and dedications, presumably to get some much needed free publicity!!

This photo shows the current mast at Villa Farm, Greete. The pink building in front of my yellow car is the TX building, and programme material could be heard coming from within . The mast has a capacitance tophat - notice there are no guy insulators on the top set of guys until they are near the ground. There is no receiving aerial visible here as the station is line fed.
