Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Rowridge transmitter area
I live near Salisbury and, for the last couple of months, can't get ITV. I've reset the tuning but no change. I had a new roof arial fitted with new cable about two years ago. I see the signal is shown as Low in the Effective power level. BBC1 & 2 are fine. Please can you tell me if the transmitter power will improve and if not what other solutions are there. Many thanks.

John Randle: The multiplex that carries ITV1, C4 and others on Ch56 and Mux D (Ch52) are on lower power than the other multiplexes.
It appears that has always been the case, certainly for four or five years.
Try manually tuning to Ch56.
The power will increase on 21st March when switchover completes. Until then, you will have to keep manually tuning and see if it comes back.

David: To be fair the current six Freeview muxes will be transmitted from Salisbury on frequencies within the existing C/D aerial group. It is a set of proposed new services that are indicated as using out of group frequencies. It will be up to the viewers to decide if they wish to receive the additional services in the event of them coming on air. In the case of Salisbury and also viewers receiving Freeview light transmitters, a replacement or additional aerial will possibly be required for reliable reception of the new services, as will a new set top box for those not in possession of a receiver able to support DVB-T2 signals. Such is the nature of progress.. The frequencies are the only ones available to Ofcom and will be shared with Rowridge where they are in-group!
