Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Stockland Hill transmitter area
Circa 2005, somewhere on the internet, I found a list of 120 then analogue-only relays earmarked to get the full Freeview service (all 6 muxes) at switchover, and Weymouth was one of the 120 such listed relays. It's such a shame that Weymouth ended up getting just the 3 PSB muxes.
