Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Keelylang Hill transmitter area
There is a mast at North Ronaldsay, i thnk it is a "repeater station" for Shetland is this true?
Also if you could not get reception when pointing to Keelylang Hill would it be possible to point your aerial to North Ronaldsay, and if not where should i point it?
Thanks for your help. Nick
