No and its the same with the daft spelling of the company which owns the
transmitters as well. If they are going to have a creative spelling of
archiver, it makes no sense to me at all.

Ah [sound of penny dropping]. Is *that* how Arqiva is pronounced? I always
thought the Q was pronounced as a Q rather than K and the I was pronounced
as EE - "Arkweever" (sorry, Brian, your screen reader is going to blow a
fuse trying to pronounce that!).

Looking at the wikipedia article for Arqiva it seems that I'd got the vowel right
and you'd got the consonant right - Arqkeever. I see reference in the
article to Merlin Communicationss: its MD and founder, Fiona Lowry, was on
the same Elec Course as I was. She's really done well for herself!
