I am pleased to say that I have, following your suggestions, implemented different symbols for the different types of transmitters which are shown on UK FreeTV.

I hope these will help everyone understand the maps and other graphics on the site in the future.

The following are now shown:

Hi Brian,
When I saw the info on the latest mapping (and the positive comments) I was enthusiastic to see if there were any further clarification of the difficult reception conditions we sometimes experience.
However there appears to be a few teething troubles.
I put my postcode in and a seriously blank map resulted. Ridge Hill and Mendip (The main full freeview transmitters) have disappeared, gone is Pillowell (nearest local freeview lite). A new option - Parkend (also freeview lite) is the only transmitter shown.
Because there are no other transmitters, the signal strength comparisons and multiplex channel lists have disappeared as well.
I suspect the new mapping works fine for other areas, but something isn't quite right for the Forest of Dean.
Keep up the good work..
Many thanks ..Dave
