New station starts testing in Cornwall

A new community radio station is due to start testing on Thursday on two FM frequencies in West Cornwall.

Penwith Radio has helped to erect a new 36tf mast which houses one of the antennas, located on the historic Lands End site to cover isolated towns and villages.

Volunteers, most of them presenters on the station, have helped out over recent weeks preparing the site ready for the transmitter mast to be installed, everything from clearing over-grown land, painting the new mast and cleaning up fencing panels to go around the site.

Martin Holland, Penwith Radio’s Marketing and Programme Director said, “These are exciting and historic times for Penwith Radio. From our very first podcasts in 2005, to our recent online broadcasting from 2009, and now with less than a month to go before we broadcast on FM, a new chapter is about to be written in the stations history.

The station launches on August 30th under a community radio licence from Ofcom granted in May 2012, using 96.5 and 97.2 MHz FM.
