Hi
I'm one of the people in Brighton (Hove actually!) on the seafront, who is screened from the main Whitehawk transmitter. Analogue reception has been acceptable across the water from Rowridge although it is fringe. Freeview reception from Rowridge has not been possible due to the low powers involved. After March 2012 do you think that the increased digital power from Rowridge is likely to be enough to serve Brighton and Hove seafronts?
Thanks Arnie

Arnie: You will continue to get Southampton news, unless you use Freesat where you can already select your region.
