More detailed pictures and DAB added - August 2016

There is no public vehicle access to this Forestry Commission site, so for mb21 photographers you face a 3.5 mile uphill walk to the transmitter site. Rising about 356m vertically from the car park on the B4434 opposite the site entrance. Mind you there was a good view from the top on this sunny day.

Since the earlier pictures, BBC National DAB has been added at Rheola. Service date, 26th March 2015.

Picture taken from a distance near the start of the walk.
