July 2011 - DAB added

BBC DAB transmissions commenced on 4th April 2007, with Digital One from 9th August the same year.

The old site number for the TV relay (139.01) has been lost due to re-branding.

...this appears to be the current design of site identification, with space for site sharers' details

DAB is from the two pairs of phased dipoles just below the cylinder. Just visible on the left hand side of the building are three GPS antennas...

This dish is very likely for the DAB feed

In the bright sunshine the nearly-new DAB dipoles sparkle. The cylinder shows signs of age.

The Band II antennas appear unchanged. Ofcom data is incomplete but it seems likely that all services share the same array.

Further down, no change to the receive arrangements. As can be seen here, both Heathfield and Wrotham are in the same direction from Newhaven, hence both the BBC FM nationals and BBC Sussex share the same receive aerial. BBC Sussex is a relay of Heathfield.

Not much directly south of the site. Here's the view south east towards Seaford.

...and here's another bit of Newhaven, looking east from the site.
