At Selkirk, for BBC A.

Nice of Ofcom et al to give plenty of notice (less than 4 weeks)
that many viewers' aerials will require replacement (at the viewer's
own expense ?).

When they say 'a small proportion of group C/D aerials may need to be
updated', do they mean a small proportion of all the aerials (ie,
those that are group C/D) or do they meal all group C/D aerials?

Also what is 'T (wideband)'? I thought 'W' was wideband.


When new aerials are fitted nowadays, are they still tuned to a range of
channels (even if not as small a range as they used to be) or are they all
wideband nowadays, suitable for whatever changes Ofcom may make in the
future?
