Hardly a Wednesday from 30th March until 23rd November 2011 will not involve a step in the UK digitalswitchover, and this week sees the first stage of switchover for 632,000 homes in the West of Central England.
If you use a The Wrekin or Ridge Hill relay transmitters, from this date you will also be able to receive all the BBC Freeview services (except HD), and you will no longer be able to view BBC TWO on analogue.
On Wednesday 20th April 2011 will see the second stage of switchover, which provide the final Freeview configuration, including Freeview HD for all transmitters in this region, except at The Wrekin where the commercial multiplexes will only be at their final output levels of 10kW in September 2011 - during this transition period the commercial multiplexes will use the following frequencies: SDN ch49 and ch31 (both 2kW), Arqiva A ch53 (1kW), Arqiva B ch57 (1kW).
Thanks Steve, using Larkstoke I will probably fit a mains powered 4 way amplified splitter with an adjustable gain in the loft(about £15 fron B&Q ) that way I can connect the two sets I use and the sockets in the other rooms and add them one at a time. I shall not use the the set power switch, it seems to be for powering mast head amps.
