The symbol shows the location of the Newry South (Northern Ireland) transmitter which serves less than 500 homes. The bright green areas shown where the signal from this transmitter is strong, dark green areas are poorer signals. Those parts shown in yellow may have interference on the same frequency from other masts.

Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Newry South (Northern Ireland) mast?

Macca: Yes Macca . Buy a Freesat Recorder and run it from a dish ....great choice of stations but no RTE . Keep your box that gets RTE stations and use both . Wish I could get all RTE stations in East Antrim I have a bit of RTE analogue reception .

Macca: It will depend on the aerial's position and orientation and your location, the distance from a main transmitter and the terrain between you and it. The UK transmitters won't switch over until next year, and it's looking like some time in the autumn since Digital UK haven't announced them yet.

Digital UK's predictor reckons you will have a very good chance of reliable reception from the Camlough and Newry South transmitters, but I'm afraid these will both be 'Freeview Light' transmitters, providing the Public Service multiplexes only. Film4 is on a commercial multiplex.

So when the switchover happens late next year will my TV pick up all the UK channels available just like it has picked up RTE digital tv and radio or will I need to buy a box to get the UK ones - guess im just a bit confused about the whole thing lol

Macca: You will need a Freeview HD box to pick up the Freeview HD channels, unless your TV is already DVB-T2. The RoI services are MPEG4 on DVB-T.
