Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Caradon Hill transmitter area
dan: Because the commercial multiplex operators don't want to spend the money on transmitting from all sites, and they aren't being forced to do so by the regulator.
Digital UK's postcode checker (trade view) shows a pretty high (over 90%) probability of reliable reception from the main transmitter at Caradon Hill. Druid's Hill is in the way of direct line of sight to the transmitter, but there should still be enough signal refracted over the terrain. You would probably need a new aerial to use Caradon Hill.
