Here are some updated Bincombe pictures.

As you can see it's got a white vertical antenna at the top, like at East Dundry Lane. This transmits BBC Radio Solent.

BBC R Solent has better coverage from this site than Wessex FM and it has been confirmed that the two services use different aerials"




The four tier band III aerial on the cantilever at the top, is now used to transmit all three DAB multiplexes. The two band III dipoles on the left were used to transmit Digital One until April 2015.




Radio Solent Tx aerial.


Wessex FM Tx aerial.
