Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Mendip transmitter area
Paul Adams : I assume that you're referring to the BBC and not NBC!
BBC standard definition services (PSB1) should have been restored now.
Retuning was NOT necessary for those using Slad as none of its broadcast channels changed.
If, however, retuning was carried out before the transmitter's receiving channel was changed then it will be necessary to carry out another retune in order to get PSB1 back again. Rather than carrying out a full retune, it may be possible to affect the same result by manually tuning to UHF channel 23.
