Here in Yorkshire using Emley Moor as I should for local programs, the one above that worries me is Bilsdale, rather surprised it is lost in amongst a lot of relay sounding names when I thought it was a high power station.

Fawley closed on 25 March 2009. It had to give up C34 so that Rowridge could use it, to free up some channels for Stockland Hill PSBs.

The one-channel relays at North Winchester, Hythe (Hants) and Hatch Bottom - which were built to transmit the 'correct' ITV1 subregion to a few areas when Meridian introduced the 'north' service from Hannington - will presumably close when Rowridge closes, although they are already essentially redundant as ITV plc have closed the 'north' service, and will be redundant from 22 February as all other services will be digital, from Hannington. It depends whether there are any frequency clashes with transmitters in the Hannington or Midhurst groups. Midhurst itself will use C59 for ArqA, which is currently used by Hythe (Hants), but it could be restricted to 5 kW until after DSO 1 in the Meridian East region (20 June 2012).

KMJ,Derby: Yes, this information is in Ofcom's 'Table of Digital Stations' at Ofcom | Supplementary licence documents in relation to DSO . Woodbridge Mux B is temporarily on C57 until 27 June 2012. Wivenhoe Park D3&4 is also on C64, not C51 as had previously been advised.

It looks like Ofcom are not going to update the 'DSO Details' information any more. They should really replace it with a pointer to the correct information in the Licensing section.

Tom,Horsham: I had a look around and found that the document from Ofcom that lists every service from every transmitter. Ch50 from Midhurst (ArqB: Yesterday etc) will be restricted to 1kW until 25th April. Thus, if you haven't been able to pick it up before then, you will need to tune it in on that date. A manual tune to Ch50 should work (no need for a full scan). If this is a simple power increase, then if you have already picked it up, then no retuning will be necessary.

Just as a warning: Ch59 (ArqA: Pick TV etc) will be on its full power (10kW) after switchover, but will have "a reactive power restriction of 5kW if required" up until 20th June.

Mike Dimmick: Thanks for the comments. I would seem I am more tired than I thought I was...

So, yes, Fawley closed in 2009. I remember watching it do it.

Wivenhoe Park/Woodbridge: Thanks for the reminder about the updates. I agree, Ofcom seem to be not updating the "reference" documents anymore.

Not sure what's happening with North Winchester Hythe (Hants) and Hatch Bottom, no mention of them in the Ofcom document.
