November 2011

Mark visited the site in Nov 2011, since Mike Smith's visit DAB has been added, along with a relay for Cardiff based regional radio station, Real Radio.

BBC DAB entered service on 5th November 2011.








The site is on high ground above the village of Goodwick, the other side of the harbour from Fishguard itself.


Starting at the top, the folded Band II dipole, used for both Radio Pembrokeshire (107.5) and Real Radio (106.2) Tx


Tx logs for UHF DTT


A pair of Band III dipoles for the BBC DAB service, complete with screen/reflector probably to avoid radiation across the Irish Sea.


From the top, RBL Rx for Radio Pembrokeshire, looking at Haverfordwest, then Rx logs on Preseli, and below those a pair on Blaen Plwyf


At the top a new pair of Rx logs that look at Preseli were installed for DSO as the parent station was changed. Below are the pair looking at Blaenplwyf, which was the parent station prior to switchover.


Viewed from the other side of the mast, the Rx yagi looking at Preseli for Real Radio
