Dear Brian Butterworth,

Where has BBC News gone?
It used to be on Astra 2D and it seems to be replaced with BBC Alba. I have tried to get it on Astra 1N 10818MHZ V tp 48 which is I believe is the freesat transponder but I cannot pick up this channel on my Fortec Star satelite box which I have reprogrammed. All other channels appear but not the BBC News Channel !!!!
I have tried to access Astra 1L 11597 V transponder 2b to get BBC world News Europe but Astra 1L is at 19.2 degrees East which I cannot access because of the hills around my small holding in the Peak District (SK110SE).

Very grateful for your advice.

I am trying to receive Digital Radio BBC 4 and BBC4 Xtra in Rushton Spencer SK110SE. Which digital transmitter will send this signal ? Is it Alsager Bank or another station. Do I need a tall mast to to get these stations? Which transmitter send FM signals to Rushton Spencer?
