Transmitters serving Merseyside
Allerton Park 95.8/96.7 Mhz FM
This is the Allerton Park site which carries the FM transmitters for BBC Radio Merseyside 95.8, and Radio City 96.7, both now on 8 KW. The site was originally set up for Radio Merseyside which was launched on 22 November 1967.
Radio City started in 1974, but the base of the tower was badly rusted and repairs had to be carried out before their antenna could be added to the site. City' had to make do with a Medium Wave only service until the work was completed.
