ITV ( Granada ) asset stripped the industry. I think they should replace the facilities they have destroyed. i.e 5 studios in Newcastle and a similar number in Leeds etc.

Brian - But Chester is NOT in the Liverpool area - which, I now note, includes a "petal" of Winter Hill

Peter D - can you beleive a population of over 200,000 for Mold and surrounds, as shown?

Do you live in the lee of a big hill towards Meol-y-parc? Your local kebab shop gets good freeview

Peter D: To be fair, the studios in Newcastle were not destroyed, just allowed to decay. In addition, modern television is largely made outside of the studio, and such facilities are needed much less.

Steve P: The coverage areas are limited by the existing use of frequencies in a particular area.

Brian:
You have the Mid-Sussex or Heathfield, Haywards Heath and Uckfield map displayed as Hemel Hempsted.
(The second map labelled Hemel Hempsted)

Some of the listed places are TV relays, some are radio transmitters and some don't have any type of transmitter.
Do you know if successful they will transmit from that town or just from the nearest main transmitter?

Derby

Just wondering if it is clear yet what will be received in Derby, currently we receive Sutton Coldfield (West Mids) for the most part but can still receive Waltham (East Mids) if the weather is good. Will this change after switchover?

Briantist: I have pictures of the bulldozers crushing Tyne Tees TV. It was stripped then destroyed. If that isn't destroyed, then I don't know what is!

MCMLXII: Sorry, an alliterative error. I have corrected it.

Yes, Ofcom note that the calculations are based on having the transmitter "half way up the mast".

As far as I have seen all the transmitters are current TV transmitters.

The transmissions will be from the masts as indicated above, I'm not sure what the point of doing all the work on the projections would be otherwise.

Sorry, if I have missed something.

Peter D: From what I remember on my visits to Tyne Tees the whole complex was falling down, it was an old theatre complex as I recall.
