Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Ridge Hill transmitter area
I live in Presteigne and currently get fairly poor digital reception from Ridge Hill, especially on commercial channels and digital radio.
After 20 April 2011, would I get better digital reception from the Presteigne transmitter than I now get from Ridge Hill?
I realise that my wideband aerial would need to be changed from horizontal to vertical polarization.

T. Weston: You will, with a fair sized aerial, get all the services from Ridge Hill, which is more than the three public service multiplexes that Presteigne will provide.
I would expect you will simply get a decent service from 20 April 11.
