The transmitters at Bristol's Mangotsfield site will fall silent in February - the lease on the site has ended & the site is to be cleared for redevelopment.

MW stations will close. DAB sevices have been relocated.

MW - Radio Bristol / Smooth Radio

I don't really know why, but reading this brought to mind my beloved Mini, with it's "Sparkrite" new-fangled Electronic Ignition box, coming to a grinding halt on the periphery of the Droitwich site. circa 1980.

Had to disconnect it to get the old girl going again.

EMC? Wassaaat? :eek:

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Ah, Sparkrite, my dad's favourite alarm brand, every time he bought a new 2nd-hand car, he always fitted it with a Sparkrite alarm... :-rofl2
