Thanks Adman, as I suspected :)

Actually, in my case here in North Hampshire, I'd be glad to hear BBC Solent from the south of the county. Can't get it properly on DAB or FM (nor am I supposed to),...

The cost of providing Radio London on CP, and WM on Sutton Coldfield will be tiny, and well worth it for the huge audiences both those transmitters have.

As explained it won't be possible to provide...

Not much for WM, but it would be a lot to carry Stoke in its area, in the case of the Fenton relay station, as that's fibre fed it might be possible to produce a special version of the PSB 1 mux,...

Indeed. I think that was the policy with all the phase 1 BBC LRs, provide them as cheaply and easily as possible. I'm not sure Saddleworth existed when BBC Manchester launched ? and even if it had,...

Yes good point, though Pen Downs was quite an early UHF TV relay, which does indicate Caradon can't be 'seen' very well, though of course UHF and VHF are different kettles of fish

Indeed, and a genuine achievement in manipulation of the masses to get supporters to pay a hundred quid or so, so that they can wear an advertising hoarding for the club's main sponsor ;-)

Yes. I suspect if BBC Cornwall is to have any FM relays added, the first will be Penaligon Downs. There's a national radio relay there (and TV) so local radio must be poor too ?

Indeed.

Take a look at the original analogue four channel UHF allocations, in the case of
Grp A and C/D stations one of the four allocations falls into the so called 800 or 500 MHz bands (aka...

I'm not sure about that. The BBC Manch/National Radio aerials are mounted on the east face of the mast, so will be to an extent screened off from Manchester to the west.
I think the BBC services from...
