Comments: Blaenau Gwent is a relay of Wenvoe (via Abertillery)

Blaenau Gwent is a low power station consisting of a collection of antennas bolted to the side of someone's house. Blaenau Gwent itself is a locality within the town of Abertillery in south Wales. The majority of this part of the Ebbw Fach valley (including most of the town), is served by the main Abertillery relay, on a hill to the south. However there is a small community nestling in the nook of the hills on the east side of the valley that is shielded from Abertillery, and these houses are served by Blaenau Gwent.

Transmit antennas are two vertically polarised log periodics pointing south east to the target area. RX is one vertical log on Abertillery.
