Situated just over a mile south east of the town itself, Newport Golf Club on the Isle of Wight stands about 100 metres above sea level. The 10m mast radiates Vectis Radio with mixed polarisation from a Sira FMC-01 aerial pointing roughly north west towards Newport.

Ofcom licensing information gives an on air date of 4-Nov-2017 for Vectis Radio.

View from car park entrance

The mast is situated adjacent to the clubhouse and presumably close to the kitchen judging by the appetising smell filling the air.

Close up of the transmitting aerial.

As with many places on the island, the site is also a great vantage point for the two main transmitters - Rowridge....

..and Chillerton Down.
