My question relates to the closure of the Lichfield analogue transmitter.
At present we receive our analogue signals from Lichfield but when it closes, will we have to change the direction of our aerials to Sutton Coldfield?

Mel Harwood: Only Channel 5 on analogue comes from Lichfield, as above.

I also believe the coverage map of this transmitter to be incorrect. Here in Rednal, south Birmingham the signal of the HD multiplex on C34 is rock solid. I have a wolsey 12 element wideband aerial that feeds a 4 way passive splitter. The signal is still 100% with a 12dB inline attenuator

Ade: The map is of the Channel 5 analogue coverage area, and as it is only valid for another 12 days I am unlikely to change it.
