David Rayner: Burnham transmits only the Public Sector Broadcaster (PSB) services. You will need to retain another aerial on another transmitter to pick up the commercial services.

The aerial group for Sudbury and Burnham are the same, so if you have a group (non-wideband) aerial for Sudbury, then you will be OK with it on the Burnham relay.

David Rayner: You should be aware that BBC standard definition and HD services from Burnham are currently on low power of 100W and on temporary channels. On 27th June they will move to their perminant channels at their full final power of 500W. ITV1/C4 etc is already at 500W, so you might find that you can pick up those but not BBC and HD. It depends where you are exactly as to whether you will need that extra power in the signal.

Are there any plans to turn the Burnham-on-Crouch into a full service transmitter?
I live in Burnham and have never been able to pick up a signal from Sudbury so I do not have the option of of using Sudbury as a full service provider.
