August 2014 - Addition of BBC DAB aerials

Sudbury was on the update list for the addition of BBC DAB aerials. It was also an opportunity to see the post DSO changes. BBC DAB entered service on 27th June 2014.

As of 22nd March 2016, the 4 tier "BBC DAB" aerial is now used to transmit Digital One and Essex local DAB as well.
