Washford has Broadcast AM radio signals to South Wales and the South West of England since 1933. The 2 supporting masts shown are 152m high. In 1967, Washford was the most powerful Radio 1 247m transmitter in the UK at 60KW. Radio 1 was transmitted from here on 247m (1214 KHz) from 1967 until November 1978, then 275m (1089 KHz) until July 1994. Prior to 1967, the 247m transmission was used as a relay for the Light Programme on the medium waveband. Today Washford transmits 50 KW of Virgin AM on 1215KHz, 100 KW of BBC Radio Wales on 882KHz and 50 KW of Talksport on 1089 KHz.
