The page which stated that Broneirion was off air was radioandtvhelp.co.uk and I accessed the page through this website (don't know how now but I looked it up in my history !) and it says that Broneirion was off air from 14.08 until 15.16 yesterday

Jenny Milborrow: That was the page I directed you to. As I say, this site gets its information from an official such as Radio & TV Help (not sure exactly where). But the point is that it is only when this site 'checks' that it will ever update and so it is not the case the official sources are proactive in notifying this site.

It would be impractical for this site to continually 'check' the status of every transmitter every minute.

I receive the Freeview signal from Broneirion Transmitter. I cannot receive the TV programmes on waveband channel 23. Waveband channels 26 and 29 are OK. The signal was lost around 9.45 am.
