As Arqiva is the company responsible for getting the transmitter back on the air, one would assume that it will be best placed to tell you.
Arqiva has a monitoring station at the Emley Moor transmitter, tel 01924 508100. Whilst Buxton is not part of the Emley Moor group, perhaps they can advise.

fred davies: The Buxton transmitter is never likely to transmit more than the Public Service channels it currently carries. See here for an explanation:

Unless you can receive the Commercial channels (those that don't broadcast from Buxton) from another transmitter, then you won't ever get them. As such, Freesat may be a solution for additional channels.
