John Myddelton: No one on this website is working on the transmitter, this is an independent help website which is not connected with an broadcaster or transmitter company. The BBC are currently reporting that the Ripponden transmitter is off air due to a fault. Do not attempt to retune as this is likely to delete of your channels.

John Myddelton:

"We" haven't turned it off, as we are an independent help site ;) But I can tell you that the BBC have got it listed as being off-air since 6.36am this morning due to a fault.
If you happened to have tried retuning whilst it was/is off-air it will have cleared all tuning and you'll need to repeat a retune when it's back on air. I'm afraid I don't know when that'll be. You could try ringing BBC Engineering on 03700-100-123 but you may not get an answer due to the current covid-91 situation. There's probably no point as they know it's faulty and it'll get fixed as soon as manpower etc allows.
