A South Norfolk radio station has taken a step closer to hitting the airwaves after installing a new transmitter.

Park Radio is set to launch in December in Diss. Based out of the Diss Youth and Community Centre, the new transmitter was installed outside.

Once up and running the station will broadcast to Diss, Eye and surrounding areas including Redgrave, Botesdale, Mellis, Dickleburgh and New Buckenham. A second mast will be installed at a later date in Harleston.

The mast, originally owned by Peachman Investigations of Long Stratton, had not been used for several years. It has been reconditioned for its new use by Mike Harper Engineering and his team based at the Heywood and transported to its new position at the Diss Youth and Community Centre.

Park Radio's Diss mast will operate on the FM frequency using 107.6FM with the Harleston mast using 105.2FM
