Can someone answerme another question? I understand that the re are a few other region numbers for satellite mapping but not sure exactly which transmitters they relate to or exactly which areas. All I know is which regions they carry.

Isle Of Man is missing from this list - it is now region 73. However, 14 is the same as Isle Of man - BBC North West with ITV Granada, and at one time, Border was on this region as well.

the ones I am not sure about the officail names for are as follows:

14 (Douglas transmittter group (?) - same as IOM
15 BBC East (E) / London
16
17 BBC NW / Granada
22 West
23 West
30
31 BBC Oxford / ITV London
32 BBC South / ITV West
39 Border Scot
40 Border Scot
42 (not used)
44 Wales
46 BBC Wales / Granada
47 (not used)
48 Wales
49 (not used)
50 ROI
73 IOM

From this you will notice that 16 and 30 are unknown, 22 and 23 map to BBC1 West and ITV West. 24 is Gloucestershire area, so do we assume that 22 is Avon/Somerset and 23 is Wiltshire? Do they not have different transmitters?

Also, which transmitter is 15 - BBC East with London and 17 - BBC North West / Granada - same as 7. Would this be for a particular county rather than a transmitter?

Also, 31 being BBC Oxford and ITV London as well as BBC Radio London - which transmitter or area is this?

Another enomoly - 32 - BBC South with ITV West? Which transmitter has this?

Also 39 and 40 are both Border Scotland areas. Is one of these Sandale?

Also, there are a total of 4 areas with Wales - the strangest one of all is BBC 1 Wales paired with Granada? I wonder do these relate to specific transmitters ie Bleanplwyf, Wenvoe, Moel Y Parc etc. Please can you clarify?

aS yet I am not sure abou the status of 42, 47 and 49 which appear to be unused.

50 is Republic of Ireland

Can you clarify also which areas these overlaps are supposed to cover - in terms of Counties.

The IOM one was missed from this map but just wondered if you can hel on this to fill the whole map in?

Thank you very much.

It will be Sandy Heath. This was an amendment to the original list on this page but I think it related to the Cambridge area - but yes it will be Sandy Heath.

Just to point out as well, Channel 5 Region 4 (Scotland) is seen in sub-region 12, not Channel 5 Region 2 (South Central).

Hope the other info here is useful.

Cheers
James
