Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Waltham transmitter area
Interesting .I'm sure the power has increased from the Ambergate transmitter. My street in Ripley is next to a wood which blocks the signal from Waltham quite a bit. The last time i was looking for Relays Ambergate was only a few watts but it seems to cover the whole of Ripley and surrounding areas now. Only Freeview light though so we're better off with Freesat still.

There's no 700MHz Clearance changes listed for the transmitter, or any power changes, still 37W apparently!
It could be that changes elsewhere have resulted in a little less co-channel interference and so slightly better coverage. Whether it remains like that, time will tell.
