Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Emley Moor transmitter area
You have posted on the Wharfedale (Light) transmitter page - it only broadcasts the 3 main PSB mutliplexes, and no commercial ones - but you are not predicted to receive it in the postcode you have provided.
The Freeview Coverage checker suggests that your most likely transmitter is Bilsdale where you should have had excellent reception, and if so and your aerial points slightly N of NE (bearing 31 degrees and rods horizontal) and you have no reception since the fire at the transmitter, then reads all the posts and updates on the Bilsdale transmitter page.
As I'm sure you know this transmitter covers the Tyne Tess region. Arqiva in their latest update hope that reception will be returned to remaining areas by the 28th August by a temporary mast.
If however you'd prefer the Yorkshire region instead, then you are predicted to get very good reception from the Emley Moor transmitter, but your aerial would need to point in almost the opposite direction at bearing 193 degrees - slightly W of due S. BUT you may need the advice of a professional aerial installer who knows the area (one who's been recommended by someone you know or who is CAI registered) as predictors aren't always 100% and there maybe local obstructions to the signal.
