Nigel, Briantist, Keith: http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/transmitternetwork/tools__and__resources/almanac/installer_newsletters_transmitter_groups2009_pdfs/Belmont_and_Olivers_Mount_1MO_FINAL_July_2011.pdf says:

"Oliver's Mount and Hunmanby will carry the same regional news services as Emley Moor."

That'll be Look North from Leeds then.

The BBC call the Hull service Yorkshire & Lincolnshire.

I have changed the BBC Region to "BBC North", meaning the service from Leeds, rather than Hull.

Right - the first phase of switch-over is now complete at Oliver's Mount and although the reception of ITV seems marginally improved it is still hopeless. I know the secon and last phase will be completed on 17th August (2 weeks today).

Precisely when will the power be increased to allow me to receive trouble free reception of the ITV channels? I seriously hope that the increased power will be activated on the 17th, as if it has already, I will be complaining in the strongest way because I have been so badly let down already, as have the residents in our area (East/West Ayton).

I await some more comments

Well that is something then - phew!!! I presume therefore that the "marginal" improvement being seen now is because the channel that ITV are transmitting on, has moved up the range?
