Pre-DSO Ch5 was added to Llandyfriog as the result of a self-help scheme.
Originally a BBC landlord site, TV channels 1- 3 entered service on 4th November 1977, with S4C available from the launch on 1st November 1982. DSO was on 19th August and 16th September 2009.
BBC FM radio was added in December 1981, with Radio's 1 & 4 added on 17th March 1994.
The first three pictures are from David Baker, and the rest are from Wayne Brewer, but from two separate visits; the second visit paid by Wayne was in order to try and photograph the very elusive UHF rx aerial.

You can also see how close it is to the top of the mobile phone support.
