Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Kilvey Hill transmitter area
I'm a little confused as to whether this transmitter (Mynydd Emroch) is actually part of the Kilvey Hill transmitter group as this website suggests it is or if it part of the Carmel transmitter group.
It's Digital Switch-Over date again according to this website says it was 23rd September 2009 which was the DSO date for Carmel.
Kilvey Hill's DSO date was 2 weeks earlier, 9th September 2009.
Which is correct?

Stuart O.: See the trade newsletter from Digital UK on Kilvey Hill switchover (from July 09):
It says that in February 2009 Mynydd Emroch was re-attributed from Carmel to Kilvey Hill. It also says that Mynydd Emroch's switchover dates were as Kilvey Hill.

Hi Dave Lindsay.
So what you are saying is that despite the fact that Kilvey Hill transmitters switched on 9th September 2009, Mynydd Emroch was a relay of Carmel that switched on 23rd September 2009 and on that date, Mynydd was handed over to Kilvey Hill? Am I right?
Likewise in that Machynlleth and Ynys Pennal were relays of Blaenplwyf but they were handed over to Long Mountain when they switched on 3rd December 2009 and Blaenplwyf switched on 10th March 2010?
Why are some relays re-grouped from one main to another main transmitter in this way?
