There's a new net-not in the nit. It's been a while since we've seen one.

Note 233A.200B is the D3&4 multiplex from Winter Hill.

Anyone know what, if anything, is scheduled for 16/08/2017 at 2pm BST?

Here's TransEdit's xml dump of it:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Descriptor HValue="0x7F" Name="Network Change Notify">
<DescriptorLength Value="20"/>
<DescriptorTagExtension HValue="0x07"/>

<ChangeType Value="0" Name="Message only"/>
<MessageID Value="0"/>
<InvariantTSID HValue="0x200B"/>
<InvariantONID HValue="0x233A" Name="North West"/>

There is no message with MessageID = 0 so "Message only" don't make a whole lot of sense.

There is a message with MessageID = 254:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Descriptor HValue="0x7F" Name="Message">
<DescriptorLength Value="42"/>
<DescriptorTagExtension HValue="0x08"/>
