West Wilts Radio is a temporary community radio station serving the town of Bradford-on-Avon and surrounding areas during the Covid-19 pandemic. It is one of eight stations granted special Covid-19 restricted service licenses (RSLs) by Ofcom.

Few technical details are known about the station as Ofcom do not publish detailed information about RSLs, but the Covid-19 licenses allow operation at the 1-25W level. From this relatively low-lying site at 45m above sea level, coverage extends across most of Bradford-on-Avon itself and as far south as Trowbridge. Coverage to the north is limited due to the intervening hills.




A single vertically polarised dipole should give near omnidirection coverage, very desirable here as the site is located close to the town centre.
