receiving Freeview channels for two transmitters:

Wenvoe (Wales) or Mendip (England)


THE WENVOE TRANSMITTER is the main UHF and National FM/DAB radio

Supported by a significant network of UHF relays, the station also serves the valleys 

of South East Wales with coverage extending westwards to parts of Carmarthenshire

and Swansea.


THE MENDIP TRANSMITTER is the UHF main station that serves the West of England

region, sited near the Cathedral City of Wells and principally serving the counties of

Avon, Somerset, South Gloucestershire, West Wiltshire and North Dorset.

Central to the service area are the cities of Bristol, Bath and Wells, whilst on the outer

fringes the station serves Taunton, Bridgewater, Yeovil, Cirencester and Swindon.  

Signals from this transmitter also cross the Bristol Channel into parts of South Wales.
