DAB added. August 2015

BBC DAB entered service on 29th April 2015. Tyne and Wear local DAB from 18th March 2016.

I could see why stays have been fitted to this tower. On a day that had just a gentle breeze, it was surprisingly windy at this site. Interestingly, further up the hillside above the Tx site, the wind dropped.
