DAB added - August 2016

BBC National DAB entered service on 29th February 2016.

Since the previous visit by Martin Watkins, all the wooden poles have been replaced with steel poles. Same grey skies still.

The site now consists of one tower and two steel poles.

The tower is home to UHF and DAB transmit and the DAB satellite receive dish.

The DAB aerials are above the UHF transmit logs.

2 tiers of band III dipoles for DAB transmit.

No change to the FM radio transmit Lindenblad aerial arrangement.
