Roger: While in the High Wycombe area I couldn't resist a visit to Chepping Wycombe in the hope of snapping the new Mix 107 aerial.
I'd not been on site long when an Arqiva employee arrived. He immediately guessed I was snapping for mb21 and commented "There are more pictures on that site than we've got."

|The original version of this page included the question: "Can anyone identify these vertically polarised skeleton slot aerials with grid reflector? There is one on each mast face about half way up."|
The answer can be found in planning application for DAB: these are noted as "National Band 3" - a trunked PMR network operating in the lower part of Band III. This ceased operations some time ago and the panels have now been removed from this site - see 2012 photographs
