February 2018

Cale Cross House is located just off the Newcastle side of the Tyne Bridge and is just a stone's throw away from a building called 55 Degress North which is home to Metro Radio/Metro Radio 2 and their Teesside sister services TFM/TFM2. The service date for all four multiplexes was the 28th November 2017.

Taken from the Newcastle end of the Tyne Bridge. The band III DAB aerials are on the left of the building roof. It maybe the angle here which is deceiving as the DAB aerials are actually located towards the rear of the rooftop. The building on the right edge of the picture is 55 Degress North - the current home of Metro Radio & Teesside service TFM.

From the same place, but zoomed in a bit. Sorry about the quality of the picture as I was wearing gloves as it was freezing cold.

This picture was taken from Dean Street Car Park on the other side of the building. You can clearly see that the DAB aerials are definitely on this side of the building. The GPS cones can also be seen.

I took this picture a few years ago. This is the building in the middle of Swan House Roundabout called 55 Degrees North. At the time this picture was taken, it was where Metro Radio and Magic 1152 (now called Metro Radio 2) moved to. Since then, it now also houses the Teesside ILR services of TFM & TFM 2.

Why have I submitted this picture? Its just a few hundred yards away from Cale Cross House.

Below: June 2018 update, although nothing seems to have changed.
