Comments: Clydach is a relay of Ebbw Vale via Abergavenny.

The Clydach relay is located on top of a hill near the hamlet of Danycoed, just to the South of Clydach itself. The access track is very well guarded - and as such I decided not to don my usual red high-vis jacket!

The target audience is the small village of Clydach itself, and a few other households where the reception of the Abergavenny Tx is not possible. (Due to them being in the shadow of Gilwern Hill, on which the Abergavenny Tx stands). There is a single vertical receive log, and a single vertical transmit log - and yes - the transmit log really is pointing at a downward angle. I'm assuming this is on purpose due to the location of the target audience. I certainly hope so, anyway!

Clydach was originally an IBA landlord site which entered service in March 1980, with S4C available from the November 1982 launch.
