Yes, that is correct Carl

Sometime in March they'll move again to 52 and 56

Currently, I have a wide and aerial for Divis and group CD for RT?, both diplexed into one downlead

I've an aerial installer coming tomorrow and he's going to fit a new wideband aerial for Divis and another for Clermont Cairn.

I'm assuming that after this, the PSB muxes and NIMM from Carnmoney Hill will take priority on ant retune on Wednesday, with the other Freeview muxes coming from Divis.

The PSB muxes from Divis, and the NIMM from Black Mountain may or may not be in the 800's along with Saorview.

Digital U.K. are predicting the LBT mux will improve significantly after Wednesday, so I assume it's moving further up the mast.

Portpatrick is also changing from group CD to group A, with Digital U.K. predicting my reception will improve as well.

I noticed BBC News HD reappeared on 107 on my Humax, with signal strength over 70 % but signal quality at <10% and no picture.

The guy who installed the aerials is coming on Tuesday to see what he can do, and will try the Divis aerial on it's own.

What a mess, and I payed a fair bit of money for this. I didn't mind, because everything was working perfectly on Tuesday, and the break up on Com 7 and Com 8 had gone.

We'll see what transpires on Tuesday. Hopefully, he'll sort things out.

The RT? aerial would have had to be changed anyway, so it wasn't money entirely wasted, but I'm very disappointed.

Digital U.K. postcode reception predictions are not fit for purpose.
