Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Darvel transmitter area
jimmy: An engineering notice has appeared since you posted showing reduced quality, so it looks like something isn't right with the transmitter. The transmitter engineering posts on this website come from a public feed provided by the BBC Engineering website, neither the owner of this website, nor any other contributor has any connection with any broadcaster or transmitter company and no one here has any control over how long it takes for these notices to appear.

Thanks steven I just saw the notice all I really wanted was confirmation it was indeed a transmitter problem and not my equipment and now I have it. Its still continuing but I keep getting 10-15 mins then blackout. At one point around 2am I think I got about an hour. Its all channels though not just the bbc as the notice suggests. I will just have to be patient. Thanks again for replying its good to know someone is out there lol

jimmy: The notice only mentions BBC because it originates from BBC Engineering, who don't issue notices about any channels or multiplexes other than their own. I'm not aware that any of the other PSB/commercial broadcasters offer a similar service.
