Typical. I can't news from the 'West' region because the digital signal from the Mendip transmitter is so low. I have to watch 'South' from the Oxford transmitter.

In March '10 the mendip transmitter ups its output from 9,000 watts to 100,000 watts so I'll be forcing the Mellon onto the roof to turn the aerial around again


Oh God.

Here's some transmitter porn for you. There's pictures if you are good.

At 500 kW E.R.P. (for the four main analogue channels) Belmont is one of the most powerful transmitters in the UK, though there are four UK transmitters which are more powerful. Sutton Coldfield, Crystal Palace and Sandy are all 1000kW and Emley Moor is 870kW. Channel 5 is only broadcast at 50 kW from Belmont and digital at 10 kW (Multiplex 1, 2, A, B) and 4 kW (Multiplex C, D) although this level of digital power is theoretically equal to 500 kW on analogue in terms of the received carrier to noise ratio required to give a "perfect" picture. After digital switchover Belmont's digital transmitting power will rise to 50 kW (for MUX4), 100kW (for MUXES 5 & 6) and 150kW (for MUXES 1 to 3),

Lots of pictures, including some of Mendip transmitter fully exposed.

This will end poorly.

Should have it's own thread. Magnificent Erections.
