As now revealed, Ventnor transmitter went off on 10th October - help, panic, who can tell me what's happening? Was it doing the re-tune a few days early?
It appears to have been a "normal" fault - nothing to do with the re-tuning, but it was very difficult to find out ANYTHING!
Just hope all goes ok on 16th . . .
