Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Ridge Hill transmitter area
Hi - For many days now we have been receiving either very reduced, or more often no signals for long periods for all TV channels from our local Peterchurch transmitter. This web-site shows at the top of this page that there are no problems or work at the transmitter. The BBC TV Reception Investigation web-site state that there are ongoing works and this has been displayed for many days!!!! Will you kindly supply me with details of the actual work being carried out and the time-scale anticipated until its completion. Is it just general maintenance (unlikely), a major repair or a major upgrade to transmit additional Freeview channels (much needed)?

E J Gooding: As this website has no connection with any broadcaster or transmitter company, no one here has any further details of what works are taking place or how long until they are completed, although as Digital UK are showing that frequency changes are due to take place next week (31st October) it would be a reasonable guess that there is work taking place in preparation for the changes. It certainly won't be to add any additional multiplexes/channels, which is just unrealistic for a transmitter serving only 700 homes.
