|Originally an ITA landlord site with VHF 405-line TV transmitters for both ITV & BBC 1. ITV on channel 11 started 23rd April 1969, with BBC 1 on channel 3 around the same time. The 405 line services closed on the 6th July 1982.|
UHF TV channels 1 - 3 were added on 29th September 1973. S4C was available from the launch on 1st November 1982. The UHF cylinder contains a NNW (340°) facing cardioid.
BBC FM radio was added early in 1981. This was re-engineered for mixed polarisation in 1992, with Radio 1 added on the 16th April 1992, and Radio 4 on 1st May 1992. Real Radio entered service on 9th August 2005 and Sunshine FM on 11th December 2007.
DAB service dates: South East Wales, 18th October 2001; BBC, 11th September 2008.
Rory Clark's photo - first photo below - was one of the first to be added to this site and so will remain in pride of place on this page, but more recently Phil England has found his way to this isolated spot...
