John McAllister:

The transmitter should be back on air now. It seems that this is another transmitter with a fault that Freeview haven't bothered to mention. The multiplex BBC B HD was Off the air due to a fault, from 8:24am to 12:47pm on 8th Nov 2019.

Unfortunately the site owner has not been able to find time to update any listings here. For an up-to-date list of which channels are on which multiplex, see Channel listings | Freeview
Unfortunately, as you know, you can only get the 3 PSB multiplexes on Light transmitters.
