Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Douglas transmitter area
Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
I live in Laxey on the Isle of Man. This morning I had all three free view digital channels, but when I turned on my TV at lunchtime today I had lost the BBC programs.
I rescanned for programs and the only working channel was 43; channels 40 and 46 absent, no signal present. I have run the scan several times during the day and the channels are still missing. Is there a problem with the transmitter?
