Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Winter Hill transmitter area
Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
Harry: Hi, Harry. I would suggest that the reason is that the main Winter Hill transmitter on Rivington Moor cannot get out very far to its East due to the terrain and so Haslingden is used to serve viewers as far South of it as Bury perhaps? Just an idea, Richard, Norwich.

Richard Cooper: It's all a bit of a mystery. The narrow beam that is aimed towards the South is pretty much all served by Winter Hill anyway ... so it seems odd that it is needed? I just have never been able to get my head around why it is so powerful toward the South!
