Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Rowridge transmitter area
Apologies. I have just worked this out for myself. Every transmitter (no matter how puny) within 100 miles of Calais High Street has its radiation pattern withheld.
Also every transmitter over a few watts up and down the country has the same issue (Woolwich 125 watts).
I am sure the French secret police are buzzing the Brading TV tower with camera equipped drones as we speak

brian: Freedom of Information requests have limits on their costs.
Therefore, with that in mind, if someone requested the radiation patterns for "all" 1,000+ transmitters, then there would, presumably, have to be some idea of expected cost. Perhaps it was calculated that the cost of considering release of the radiation pattern of each transmitter individually would exceed the cost limit. Therefore, maybe they were done in geographical blocks or grouped in some other way.
Hence considering whether radiation patterns for BBC South transmitters, for example, should be released, the answer came back as "no they shouldn't" because it was considered that at least one should be withheld.

brian: I copied all the FoI request information here - Freeview news | ukfree.tv - 10 years of independent, free digital TV advice ...
disclosure of the antenna radiation patterns into the public domain could lead to these being available to foreign administrations, which would substantially weaken HM Government's negotiating position with respect to international frequency clearance;
a weaker negotiating position for HM Government may lead to additional cost for the broadcasters (where antenna systems have to be re-built as a result of international coordination) and lower coverage for viewers (where antenna systems have to be restricted in order to protect foreign transmissions); and
the BBC is required to provide coverage of its services on digital terrestrial television to a certain proportion of the population by the completion of switchover and a failure or suboptimal result from international co-ordination may harm the BBC's ability to meet this obligation.
Costs were not an issue. The BBC had the full data and redacted it when sending it to me.
