Dale, I think it has been pushed up to 2.2kW. I don't understand why most people could get it before when it was broadcasting on just 1.1kW though. I know it was on a channel in the 50s then, and now it's moved to the 60s, but I think we've established that those affected have got wideband aerials, so the frequency's not an issue.

I think the most plausible theory is that ArqB's not being broadcast in an omnidrectional and/or if it is, then the fact it's on a smaller mast now (and is therefore lower down, presumably) is meaning it's difficult to pick up.

Digital UK and/or Arqiva don't seem to care, and are erroneously suggesting people get their aerials replaced when they already have new wideband aerials (maybe they don't care because they want to generate some business for the aerial business, who knows). I guess those without ArqB will just have to hope that they can get it back when the COM muxes get moved onto the main mast - and are broadcast at full power - from next June.

Does anyone know when the FEC change happens? Is it 6am, as per the other changes?

Is there anywhere I can find details of the power that the different muxes are broadcasting at for different transmitters? This website has current levels so the data must be available somewhere. Ideally I want future data for transmitters that will soon be switching (e.g. Crystal Palace)
