Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Emley Moor transmitter area
nick davis: No is the short answer to your question. You are however predicted to be able to receive the full Freeview service with good reception from Emley Moor, subject to there being no local obstructions, such as trees or tall buildings, blocking the signal path. Use a group B aerial set for horizontal polarisation for reception of Emley Moor. There are no current plans to add the COM muxes to relay transmitters as it would double the transmission cost whilst only serving an additional 8% of the population.
