THE TRANSMISSION GALLERY

ABERTILLERY

Photos by Andrew Rogers and Phil England Page last updated: 2015-12-14

This is a very fine high CCI site near St Illtyd's Church. Unusually this site uses trough aerials for both receiving and transmitting. The lower horizontally polarised troughs point at Wenvoe.

Originally a BBC Landlord site, UHF TV on 3 channels commenced on the 30th November 1973. S4C was available from the launch on 1st November 1982. BBC FM radio entered service on the 19th April 1991.










Looking north from the site at the transmission area, Abertillery town


Near this site I found one of the many former cable head ends, now looking rather forlorn with a small empty building and lots of loose cables, but many of the original bowtie antennae can still be seen. There is another such site near Ebbw Vale.
