Much needed updates have been done to ukfree.tv
I must apologise for this taking much longer to deal with than I had expected. There have been several issues that have needed addressing.
The first is that the AWS servers that run this site have been moved from the AWS site in Dublin to their London one. This has been mainly done to improve the page load time for most users who are based in the UK. There are four machines: the main webserver, the overlay map webserver, the database server and the backup server. This, I hope, will reduce the hosting costs.
The second issue is to do with the Google Maps API. This is system that, for over a decade, Google have provided to us here for free. However, this is no longer the case and cost £280 (plus VAT) for September 2018.
As well as moving the server around, I have made a few changes to the front-end code to provide a better way to display the site’s material design icons. You might notice this if you zoom in a lot…

Hi, My Predictor seems to have removed Crystal Palace from my list (GU9 8JY) since this is the service I have always used and the Transmitter hasn't moved.....
Also some to the Channel numbers are missing, when looking at individual freeview muxes on double clicking from maps. (https://ukfree.tv/maps/freeview) I checked Hannington and Crystal Palace.
