Are you sure the switchover dates here are correct? According to Digital UK's site King's Lynn is switching in Novemeber the same as Tacolneston Digital UK - Postcode checker - Results for Economy Carpets, 30, Tower Street, King's Lynn, PE30 1EJ would make sense, but then I know that Digital UK's site is not the most accurate sometimes.

Steve: No, the dates were incorrect. I have no idea why, the database was updated for the whole region, for some reason this transmitter had the wrong information.

barry beales: No, but you are supposed to be able to receive it from either Belmont or Waltham, using a suitable aerial. Historically the Kings Lynn transmitter was provided when Belmont, which used to provide Anglia TV to the area was switched to Yorkshire TV leaving viewers with incorrect local news. It provided BBC1 East and Anglia TV only, with viewers using Belmont or Waltham for BBC2, C4 and C5. At switchover therefore, only the 3 PSB muxes were provided from Kings Lynn.
