Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Dover transmitter area
Dawn Pryor : In addition to that said. The procedure of choosing a channel for a Sky boxes modulator to operate on to avoid it clashing with one used by the local DTT transmitter is no longer necessary since DTT transmissions ceased using channels from 61 upwards, this being the reason why I stated to choose anything from 63 - 68 as these channels are safe to use irrespective of where a person might reside in the UK as nothing transmits in this range.
I would though avoid using channels 61 and 62, as these two channels are in the range liable to cause problems in the "analogue" tuner of the TV receiving the signal from the Sky box, that is should any 4G transmissions be operating in your area.

Dave Lindsay: Yes, quite correct, as 4G providers were indeed allocated individual slots to operate on over the range of channels mentioned. However what I was really getting at in my posting, albeit not explained very well, is that it's unlikely anyone using the output of a Sky boxes modulator to feed the analogue signal into a TV in another room would experience any problems by using this range of channels.
My reasoning behind this being based on the fact, that if they were resident in an area close to a 4G transmitter, the effects of (if any!) would manifest itself by causing problems to their Freeview reception well before being high enough to impose noise (grain etc) on the analogue picture. Plus, if they had previously been experiencing problems with Freeview reception as the result of 4G transmissions, then their aerial system will already be fitted with an in-line 4g filter, and as such eliminating any remote possibility of experiencing any problems in the first place.
Of course, it goes without saying that this only applies to Sky box users who also use Freeview, because if they don't, then they wouldn't have anything connected into the Sky boxes aerial input socket.
