The Sandale transmitting station is the main radio transmitting station for the county of Cumbria, including the Lake District, and eastern Dumfries and Galloway. It used to broadcast regional variations of BBC One and BBC Two until digital switchover happened in the region. All television channels now come from the nearby Caldbeck transmitting station.

The station is situated on the Caldbeck Fells close to the B5299 road and eight miles south of Wigton. Its mast is 153 metres (502 ft) high.

Until 1993 it broadcast Radio Solway. Now it broadcasts BBC Radio Scotland on the same frequency.
