Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Pontop Pike transmitter area
John: With regard to DAB radio, the Newton mast should have the BBC national DAB multiplex added in the near future. The local DAB plan does show Newton as one of a number of sites required to bring coverage of the Tyne & Wear 11C multiplex up to the current level of FM services from BBC Newcastle, Metro FM and other independant local/regional radio stations. The timescale for expanding the 11C coverage is unclear, there being no real hurry until such time that a DSO for radio is announced.
