Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Belmont transmitter area
Are they ever going to sort Belmont Transmitter? Nearly every week there is maintenance causing unwatchable tv. I can't record programs because I get failed recording and I have upgraded my TV aerial, new cable and a mast booster with a 5G filter.
I contacted the BBC Reception Advice who agreed that my area is poor reception and I should get Freesat. I ordered Freesat and he couldn't install it because of trees.
What do I pay a TV licence for?

Paul Fearn : When you made your last posting on here in October, I did some research and put together two long postings which are here:
Belmont (Lincolnshire, England) Full Freeview transmitter | free and easy for 21 years
In those comments I explained that prior to digital switchover (DSO) in 2007, Bridlington was identified by TV-frequency planners as one of a nine places requiring its own transmitter. This was cited in an Arqiva report, Arqiva the company that run all the TV transmitters today. Seven of the other places got a new transmitter -- Bridlington did not. An eighth place saw increased transmission power from nearby transmitters to improve coverage.
I suggested you use this such as to lobby your MP. Also, raise awareness with other groups, such as those supporting the elderly. Your message would be to refer to the fact that poor reception in Brid had been discussed along with a number of other areas for improvement, and that all other areas saw steps taken, yours got nothing.
I then referenced a BBC document of September 2008 on the subject of TV coverage post-DSO. It identified the proposed site for a Bridlington TV transmitter as Buckton Barn. If I were you, I would be looking to find out why this got canned. How about an FOI request to the BBC asking for the document or documents in which this proposed transmitter is discussed and decided against (presumably after September 2008)? This is an idea in the early stages, so it may be worth giving it more thought as to the exact question which may me most useful to have an answer for.
Writing to others, such as your MP, and complaining is one thing. But with the sources I have referenced you can make a stronger case, pointing to the facts that the planners have said there is a problem and identified a potential solution in the form of a transmission site.
