I'm unsure why you can't see the figures at the top of the page with the pink background, or the "Comparison of analogue and digital signal levels" also shown? .. >> Well,is does not actually say what is what so thats why I asked. If only people who manage the WEB site say how it is.. " POWER TODAY FOR THESE TRANMISSION IS blah blah blah. At LAUNCH it will be blah blah blah. Even the aerial rigers don't know what is happening which seems to mean people are paying for additional equipment they don't need....or perhaps that is the scam ???

John Bolton: With due respect, it says exactly the information you asked for.

"There is no indication as to what the current power is. "

These are listed at the very top of the page, six figures in pink with the words "Watts".

"Whilst I can see the power in your listing it does not indicate what is is now. "

The information shown at the top of the page is the information for now.

After DSO on 22 Feb the notes mention that "the low power DTT antenna is used" until the London area switches over on 18 Apr. What exactly does this mean? Will the DSO power increase for Hannington be delayed until 18 Apr? Or is just that a less effective antenna is being used at the higher power? What are the likely effects on reception at RG12 8WU when the antenna changes on 18 Apr?

This morning at 7am I cannot receive any of the MUX2 transmissions with MUX1 being at a lower power than usual(maybe some of the other MUXs as well but didn't have time to go through them all).
As a matter of interest I had a problem several weeks ago when I lost ALL signals for a few hours (this happened twice in a week). It turned out to be crows or pigeons sitting on the aerial tilting it down... I've since had the system tightened up!

RGB: In short, you should get BBC, ITV1, C4 after 8th and 22nd February. If you have issues with any, it will be solely the commercial channels.


Long explanation:

The Public Service Broadcaster (PSB) multiplexes (BBC, ITV1, C4, C5 etc) will be on their full final power from the dates of switchover (8th Feb for BBC radio/TV standard definition and 22nd Feb for the others). These will be at 50kW.

The COMs will remain on low power until 18th April. There is no indication (from Ofcom) of what that power is other than to say that "the low power DTT antenna is used". I take this to mean the same one used before switchover at the same power as before switchover. So if you get the COMs now, then you will continue to do so. If you don't, then you will have to wait until 18th April, if you are ever to get them. I say this because the final power for the COMs will be 25kW (i.e. half that of the PSBs).


Someone who, after 18th April, can receive the PSBs but find that the COMs are not quite strong enough will probably benefit from a more sensitive aerial.
