Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Skriaig transmitter area
Terrain and coverage is the short answer. Signals of different polarisations propagate differently and it's possible that with varying terrain one polarisation may get into a particular location better than the other. Another possibility is that some locations might be subject to co-channel interference and depending on the interfering signal, the other polarisation may resolve that.
