Sudbury (Suffolk, England) Full Freeview transmitter
Wednesday 20 July 2011 10:02AM

Hi Everyone,

Just checked the Digital UK website for my postcode (we live in Clacton), amazingly they predict that my reception will get better on 16 November this year, then gradually worsen until 2012 when only 10 channels will be 'good'

This seems ludicrous, I've retuned this morning and all seems good signal strength wise from Sudbury and Clacton transmitters, except for the Film Four mux (50), we already use a booster and at least ITV is now coming in strong, but it seems rubbish that according to Digital UK by 2012 the channels that are 'variable' increase to 59 from 45 today.

I thought switchover was supposed to make things better not worse ?

Sorry for the rant, and thanks for this great website, very useful.
