Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Heathfield transmitter area
I'm getting bad blocking freezing on cbeebies and sometimes on bbc parliament, radio stations. I am on the Heathfield tx with a Televes DAT 45 aerial and new co-ax cable. Would I be better trying to pick up the Lamberhurst tx? Or maybe Crystal Palace (although I don't want BBC London particularly)Thanks Simon, Church Road, Kilndown

Simon Lees: The Lamberhurst transmitter won't start transmitting digital signals until some time in the middle of next year. The exact dates have not yet been published - we assume after April 2012 as Crystal Palace won't switch until then - DUK's postcode checker shows an 'Existing DTT Power-Up' event at Heathfield on 18 April 2012.
We really need a full postcode to have an idea of what you could do.
I've tried TN17 2SF with Digital UK's trade view - this does show Mux B (which carries CBeebies, BBC Four, BBC Parliament and the radio stations) as the lowest probability for your address. It also shows that it is likely to get worse after Sudbury switches over in July, as one of the PSB multiplexes there (which launch at full power) uses the same channel.
It doesn't show any better alternative transmitter at the moment. Bluebell Hill is a possibility but is expected to get worse in November. You might be able to get slightly better results by carefully re-siting the aerial.
