The Aldeburgh transmitter is relatively high powered and covers a wide area. It is long overdue that this broadcast the full range of channels, specially now that freeview are making it yet more difficult to get Tacolneston and Sudbury with their numerous channel changes.

nick horrex: Since it serves just 9500 homes, why would anyone bother?

Nick Horrex:

Aldeburgh is a Freeview Light transmitter covering a relatively small number of viewers. Its 3 multiplexes are all rated at 10kW, which is not at all considered 'high powered' considering that a main transmitter would have multiplexes radiated at 100kW or more, in some cases greater than 1 MW. Aldeburgh is intended to 'fill in' an area with poor reception from the main transmitter covering much, but not all, of the area.

nick horrex: Can you really imagine the commercial broadcasters wanting to put their full range of services on a transmitter that serves less than 10k households?

Freesat, methinks.
