Hi, I get a Signal Strength of around 64% with a Signal Quality of 100% on my Freeview Channels in Otley, West Yorkshire via the Wharfedale Transmitter using an LG TV. Is a Signal Strength of around 64% OK? I don't get any issues with the picture at all? Many Thanks for your time, Andrew

Hi, I receive approx 20 Freeview Channels & 16 Radio Stations from the Wharfedale Transmitter in Otley, West Yorkshire. I notice that these are transmitted from UHF Frequencies 22 and 25 ( Those that originally carried the Analogue Signals for BBC 1 (Channel 22) & ITV (Channel 25).
Can I ask why this Transmitter does not utilise the UHF Channels 28 & 32?? These were used for the Analogue Signals for BBC2 & Channel 4?? (Channel 5 was never transmitted as an analogue signal from this particular Transmitter)
Wharfedale is a Relay Transmitter in Otley receiving the main signal via Emley Moor.
But why are they only utilising Channels 22/25 & not extending the quantity of channels receivable by utilising channels 28/32??
Is the Transmitter to full capacity for digital signals?
Look forward to hearing your views on this.
Many Thanks for your time, Andrew
