Comments: Llandecwyn is a TV relay of Llanddona (via Arfon). Pre B700 allocations: 49/58/54.

Llandecwyn is situated towards the northern end of a mountain range called the Rhinogs. It provides UHF TV coverage to Porthmadog, Penrhyndeudraeth and the lower part of the Vale of Ffestiniog, where mountains screen the signal from the main TV site in the area, Arfon.

BBC national FM radio was added in August 1995 and BBC DAB entered service 18th September 2009.
