Channel 12 & 15 (alone with 18, 21, whatever number ITV 4 is on & numerous others on ARQB) are transmitted at 12.5 kW on UHF channel 55 to avoid co-channel interference with MUD D (also ARQB)from Sutton Coldfield - which is also transmitted on the same UHF channel. After DSO Sutton Coldfield wont use UHF channel 55 so the 12.5kW power on ARQB from Winter Hill can be switched up to 100kW. This will happen after the 21st September 2011.

I live in Whaley Bridge & can get all Freeview channels with a std Blake SR18 CD aerial. However, there is a 24dB variable gain masthead amp strapped to it. I get a reflected signal too as Black Hill is between my house & Winter Hill. My aerial points almost directly towards where Emley Moor is (can also receive Freeview from there but nowhere near as good quality due to wrong aerial group & big hills in the way). Film 4 etc has improved a lot since the power increase. The occasional picture break up I get I can live with - this seems to be mostly caused by traffic going past my house, no doubt adding further reflected signals to the one I'm already receiving.
