I am in Somercotes Alfreton and my aerial points SE, would it be picking up Freeview from Waltham or Nottingham transmitter? Is there a way of finding out?

Dezza: If your aerial is mounted with the rods horizontal and is pointing at 129deg. it is receiving from Waltham. If the rods are vertical and it is pointing at 146deg.it is receiving signals from Nottingham (Kimberley). A further check is the channels being received. Waltham currently uses C23, C26, C33, C42, C45, C49. Nottingham uses C29, C39, C53, C59, C63, C67. This is the case until 30th March after which alterations are made to the frequencies in use at both transmitters on various dates.

Ian: I wish Brian would take down Mux 7 and 8. They were only hypothetical, possible assignments in an Ofcom study on 'interleaved spectrum'. Some sites had two possible frequencies, some had one.

They're not licensed to anyone, Ofcom haven't even set a date for auction of any frequencies, so we're a long way from knowing if there will even be a service and what frequencies it will be on.

At some sites, these two erroneous bits of data are actually hiding real allocations, although usually temporary ones.

Since the study was done, European countries have collectively decided to flog off channels 61 and 62 (about 800MHz) for mobile phones, which means the whole thing has to be replanned anyway.

PSB3, or BBCB, will be the high-definition multiplex after switchover. The BBC's other services all move to BBCA, which gains 6Mbit/s, one-third, extra capacity over Mux 1. This isn't really enough for all their services, but the BBC have closed most of the services that wouldn't fit.

Mike Dimmick: "With Ofcom announcing a timetable for the auction of the 800Mhz and 2.6Ghz frequencies, and the Government indicating that 500Mhz of public spectrum will be freed in the next 10 years, delegates will examine how the airwaves can be allocated, assess the dangers of a 'spectrum drought' to UK competitiveness and consider tensions that are likely to arise between competing uses."
