ray clegg: That's impossible to answer at the moment. Engineers cannot work on the mast at Bilsdale until it has been confirmed to be structurally safe and although Arqiva have a temporary mast being transported to Bilsdale it will take time to be constructed and connected up to the transmitters, which could be anywhere from a few days to several weeks. If you provide a full postcode we can check whether you might be able to tune to another transmitter.
