Rowridge (Isle Of Wight, England) transmitter
Friday 31 January 2014 6:45PM

It may be sometime before the additional HD channels from Rowridge start. I sent Digital UK an email as I had been expecting them to start this month,

There response was "The Com7 HD frequency from the Rowridge transmitter has not launched yet. This is due to happen before July, in time for the commonwealth games. I would advise you to regularly check the above link, as the details are updated and a firm date will be added as soon as we are informed."

The link referenced was using their detailed coverage checker at Digital UK - Coverage checker (BN412HT)

Whitehawk Hill (Brighton and Hove, England) Full Freeview trans

Just did a channel scan and I am getting a test card with 'Comux-local TV test' at 738 MHz with 100% quality.

No't bad for my new horizontally polarised aerial pointed at Rowridge which I'm hoping to get BBC4 HD from next week.

The 'Comux-local TV test' is currently on channel 791 showing with a name of 'Local TV Test1'.

BonanzaBonanza is now transmitting adverts on channel 64, with the Loan Ranger, Dragnet, The Beverley Hillbillies, Bonanza, Flash Gordon, Sherlock Holmes, and the Lucy Show to follow according to the EPG.

@RJ - I'm pointing at Rowridge from Portslade to get BBC4 HD and BBC News HD (50% signal strength 100% quality) from a roof aerial with mast pre-amplifier.

I'm getting the "Brighton Local TV" test successfully from Whitehawk via the back of my aerial (71% signal strength 100% quality). So I don't need to point at Whitehawk to get this channel.

I also seem to be getting a test Solent Local TV (43% signal strength). from Rowridge.
