Sutton Coldfield transmitting station

Coordinates: 52°36'02" N, 01°50'02" W ; Site Height: 167.7 m; Structure Height: 270.5 m
The Sutton Coldfield transmitting station is a broadcasting and telecommunications facility located in north Sutton Coldfield, in Birmingham, England. On 17 December 1949, it became the first television transmitter to broadcast outside London and the Home Counties, bringing BBC Television to viewers outside of the south-east of England for the first time. A new mast was built around 1983 to replace the original structure, primarily to support new mixed-polarisation FM antennas. In terms of population covered, it is the second most important transmitter in the UK, after Crystal Palace in London.

The Droitwich transmitting station is a large broadcasting facility for longwave and mediumwave transmissions, established in 1934 in the civil parish of Dodderhill, just outside the village of Wychbold, which is near Droitwich, Worcestershire, England. This transmission site is the location of the British Broadcasting Corporation's most powerful longwave transmitter, which together with the two Scottish longwave transmitters at Burghead and Westerglen forms part of a network broadcasting on the same frequency. This frequency was 200 kHz until 1989 and is now 198 kHz.
