May 2017 - DAB added

The start of the track up to this site is from the south in Lewistown where all the rooftop TV aerials point towards Blackmill. It is about a 1.2km uphill walk to the Ogmore Vale Tx. On this occasion sunny with a gentle cool breeze. Ideal walking conditions.

BBC National DAB entered service on 16th November 2015.

Two tiers of band III dipoles have been added on a cantilever at the top for DAB transmit.

I suspect that the single vertical log below the platform was added at some point to sustain a low powered service while the main stack of 4 was being maintained.

Band II dipole for FM radio transmit.

Receive aerials. Both pointing towards Wenvoe, which was visible on this occasion. See below.
