|54.267,-0.405 or 54°16'2"N 0°24'17"W
The symbol shows the location of the Olivers Mount (North Yorkshire, England) transmitter which serves 30,000 homes. The bright green areas shown where the signal from this transmitter is strong, dark green areas are poorer signals. Those parts shown in yellow may have interference on the same frequency from other masts.

Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Olivers Mount transmitter area
Paul: First, forget about averages, they're meaningless. The coverage on one set of channels is not altered by the power level on another set of channels, and what you care about is whether it's strong enough on the channels you do want.
On digital, TV channels are carried in a 'multiplex', a digital transmission that carries lots of channels in the space that one analogue channel used to take. This is done because there's much more capacity available that one compressed TV channel takes (three to four times typical DVD rates, TV is more heavily compressed than a DVD), and there's a certain amount of space wasted if you tried to divide up the broadcast channel into smaller blocks.
All that's happened so far is that the high-power BBC A multiplex has replaced the old analogue BBC Two and the low-power Multiplex 1, which carried most of the BBC channels before yesterday. Because BBC Two's analogue channel is being freed for 4G mobile services, the digital transmission has actually taken over BBC One's frequency and BBC One has temporarily moved to BBC Two's old location.
That new BBC A multiplex is transmitting at a maximum of twice the maximum power of the former analogue transmitter on that frequency. It's 20 times the power of the old low-power Multiplex 1.
Where there are factors of millions of times between the highest and lowest levels accepted, engineers usually use a logarithmic scale - decibels. A multiplication of the original by a factor turns into an addition of the logarithms of the original value and the factor. Multiplying power by two is adding (about) 3 dB and multiplying by ten is adding 10 dB. It's a useful scale if, like human hearing and vision, there is a logarithmic response, or if, like TV transmission, the source is diffused in all directions, but we largely 'see' just the straight-line path between transmitter and receiver.
On the 17th, the remaining analogue and low-power digital transmissions will be switched off. The replacement high-power transmissions will start up at their allocated power levels - 2000W for the three multiplexes that were gifted or licensed to the public service broadcasters (BBC A, D3&4, BBC B/HD) and 1000W for the three multiplexes licensed to commercial operators (SDN, Arqiva A, Arqiva B).

Yes I do use Bilsdale but its TT TV and people in Ryedale (Malton to the coast) prefer YTV so had a play to see what I could get Emley moor is forecast to be higher strengh so will try in September
