Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
Brian.That is because the Rothesay relay is a freeview lite mast broadcasting only the public service broadcast multiplexes BBCA,D3+4 and if you have a DVB-T2 tuner the BBCB (HD) multiplex too.All freeview lite relays have no obligation to transmit SDN,ArqA and ArqB commercial multiplexes due to cost,hence why only two or three PSB (only) and zero COM multiplexes as such !
