Update to transmitter location information

A small upgrade to the transmitter pages

A small upgrade to the transmitter pages
published on UK Free TV

Following some requests I have made a change to the "location information" shown on the transmitter pages.

First, the location is now show in both metric and degrees-minutes-seconds notation.

The links to see the transmitter from satellite using Google Maps, Bing maps and Google Earth now shows an icon for each.

The nearest postcode to the transmitter is shown, should you wish to use this.

Finally, there is now a "Click to recheck" when no engineering information is shown.

Also, some transmitters have a little "Streetview man" icon - click this to see a picture of the transmitter.

Farnborough

I live at GU147AZ close to Farnborough clockhouse roundabout. All aerials nearby are pointed to the Hannington transmitter al though other transmitters are closer. Because of the very poor reception using the aerial our block of flats have had to pay for a sat dish to be able to watch freesat. When the digital switchover happens for us in 2012, will we be able to watch freeview using Hannington or another?

Derek Twigg: Easy answer for you on this one - yes.

On 22nd February 2012 you will have the full power, full Freeview service from Hannington. That's just a year to wait now.

Hi

Come the switchover we gain a new 25.5 metre Relay Freeview Transmitter with PBS channels only (but lose the more distant transmitter that previously provided the full range of stations)

My MP says that this is because ALL Relay transmitters ONLY include PBS Mux.

I'm sure that this is not strictly correct (especially in the South West and Scotland) Please can you give me information on Freeview Relays Transmitters that DO carry all stations so we can pressure him to get us the full range of stations like all of the other towns in his Constituency

Thanks

John H: Sorry, but the information you have is correct. Only the main 81 Freeview transmitter have the commercial services. See Full service Freeview transmitters map | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice .

The commercial operators cannot be made to do anything. If you want more channels, use Freesat/Freesat+/Freesat+HD.
