Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Emley Moor transmitter area
Norman Cook: I take back what I said. Dronfield is fed over the air from Chesterfield which is line-fed (phone line) from Emley.
Looking at the spread of the signal from the Dronfield transmitter I'm surprised you can receive it in Norton.
In any case, reception from Crosspool/Tapton Hill would give you all the channels.
