SFM 106.9 (as their RDS shows) launched in July 2012 with their transmitter located at Sittingbourne (Central Avenue). Their transmitter was relocated to the top of the Swale House council building in May 2019. It is not a great place for a broadcast transmitter but good enough to cover the fairly small town of Sittingbourne.

[Ed] David was unaware that the SFM transmitter had been relocated again in September 2023 to Sittingbourne (Demelza House), so this site was no longer in use at the time of his visit.

A single folded dipole on a building is only marginally less interesting to photograph than an end fed dipole.

The standard Jaybeam type dipole. At least the birds were impressed.
