David Tyler:

I believe that Ramsgate is served by the Dover Freeview transmitter, please correct me if that is incorrect.

Dover transmitter is a full service Freeview transmitter but it does not carry COM7 nor COM8. Forces TV is brodcast using capacity on COM8, so as Dover does not broadcast that you will not be able to receive it until the channel re-allocation occurs and Forces TV appears on a different multiplex, probably after March next year (according to the data hugher up this page).
