Rowridge (Isle Of Wight, England) transmitter

I've been waiting for info on when the additional HD channels will start, but have got this right they will only be on HP not VP as well, as on moving I needed to change to a VP aerial to get a stable signal from Comm's 4, 5, 6.

If I need to go back to HP will need amp's and filters because of the signal conditions an proximity to 3 phone mast?

As a TV engineer since the mid seventies I feel that someone in authority needs to be pointed out to them that messing about like this very confusing and expensive and should be clearer in the advertising implying more channels on the way so make certain you get an HD TV when you up grade, not much use if every time they change transmissions you need to change your aerial better off inventing an auto-rotating aerial!

Not sure what's happened but retuned set and got additional HD channels, aerial set to vertical polarity as had problems Comm4 with HP, thought only TX on HP?
