Improvements to aerial position information and mixed-polarity transmitters

You can now see more information about Full Freeview and public service transmitters, including the transmission height and polarity, and transmitters that provide both horizontal and vertical signals are now shown in full.

Following the Updates from "licences version 7", mixed polarity transmitters, corrections updates yesterday, I have made changes to the pages that display information about the multiplexes provided by each and every transmitter in the UK.

The changes are summarised in this diagram:

Firstly, the height above sea level ("datum") for each multiplex is shown. Some masts such as Emley Moor have multiplexes broadcasting from different heights, due to space restrictions on the construction. You can now see this.

Secondly, the polarity for reception is now shown in the "power bar" for each transmitter, making it easier to spot.

Thirdly, for the small transmitters that operate in both horizontal and vertical modes, such as Rosneath, this information is now clearly displayed.
