Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Emley Moor transmitter area
Mike Dimmick - thanks for yr response.
The good news, which I was about to post, is that about 20mins ago TV flickered back into life! I'd left it on, set to BBC1, took a few seconds for picture to settle, but after that all my usual channels available. Phew!
The BBC site: www.ukfree.tv/bbc/gotobbceng.php still says 'offline since 08:35' - perhaps the engineers are sitting there with crossed fingers, too nervous to tempt fate by declaring AOK too soon.
The BBC link you kindly listed above leads you to a reporting page which assumes, as do all the other sites I found, ONLY that the problem is my reception, not anything to do with transmitter/transmission.
They make you jump through many - page fulls - of yes/no questions offered only one at a time, before at last you get to a text box to enter comments/symptoms.
They then warn that you are unlikely to get a response!
I guess they have remote monitoring for the 50 or so satellites fed by Emley Moor, so have a fair idea of the problem the moment it arises. They will have some idea of when a crew can arrive on site, and even some idea of how long to correct, all within minutes of the fault arising.
Could we not be in on a bit of this info? ukfree is more help than all the other services put together - keep up the good work!

carlos: Because those that don't broadcast from Hebden Bridge transmitter (the Commercial ones) don't consider it worth their while. Those that do broadcast have a "Public Service obligation. See here for an explanation:
Londonderry transmitter | ukfree.tv - 10 years of independent, free digital TV advice
Look around for any aerials directed at Emley Moor as these are likely to provide all channels. Emley Moor is at 121 degrees and aerials will be horizontal/flat (unlike Hebden Bridge ones which are vertical). This might give you an idea as to whether you might be in with a shot at getting the full service from Emley.

Gill A: Enter the postcode for the transmitter into the Northern Power Grid website and you will see that the time the transmitter went off air 11:43, according to R+T Investigation, is the same time at which the power went off.
The postcode, HX7 6JW, is given at the top of this page.
The answer therefore is: some time after the power is restored.
