It could do with updating, though - it refers to events which "will

I've alerted Mr Brown, but he is a very busy chap. :-)

It's more inaccuracy from that site.

SC is still getting six muxes:- (Eight if you include the two auctionable
assignments)

the map of Crosspool coverage is ludicrously inaccurate. It suggests that
Crosspool can be received as far north as Morley (just south of Leeds).


Are you sure the coverage map isn't post-switchover? Crosspool is going
from the current 100/50W ERP to 1000/500W ERP after switchover. That
should increase the coverage a bit.

Excellent - that confirms that a Group B aerial will still be optimal
after switchover where I live...

Are the two additional muxes set aside for DTT or general uses?

There is a great thread going on digital high power.
But I'm wondering how it will happen.

Take Emley Moor for an example.
Present high power anologue, possible reduction in power nearer we get to
switch off in order to make the equipment last untill switch off day.


Why would they reduce analogue power for that? The equipment is surely not
so flimsy that they have to tone down the gas!


Present low power digital transmitters.
Future new high power equipment supplied, does it get tested once

installed?

I should hope so!

( would present anologue/digital go off for these tests.)



I am guessing that there would be a period when both are working, though
this may not be possible on all UHF numbers.

At say midnight on the appointed day, the anolgue/digital go off and the

new
digital go on?


I doubt it.

The map relates to the sub-regionisation of YTV now, so presumably it refers
to analogue coverage now. It wouldn't matter what power they used, you
wouldn't be able to receive Crosspool in Morley! There's very high ground
(including the Emley Moor site) in the way.

When they started this buisiness of having different news from Crosspool and
Belmont they cheerfully worked on the fantastic basis that everyone in S
Yorks uses Crosspool. In fact only a minority in Sheffield City use it,
since most residential areas are on the hills with a good view of Emley.
When you go across to Doncaster Belmont becomes important (about 15% in the
town) and on the SE outskirts and villages Belmont is perhaps 40%. There's
lots of people as far west as Barnsley who use Belmont. It causes no end of
annoyance this sub-regional lark.

If they got rid of all the ****e on Calendar (bloody stupid stories about
fat people who got thin, dogs that happened to bark at the right moment and
saved their owner's life, little kids that did much the same, giant bloody
flowers in people's gardens, dogs that ride horses/skateboards/tricycles,
sad *******s who won the lottery and spent the lot in a fortnight, the man
with the world's largest collection of teddy bears, Christ's face appearing
in Yoghurt pots, one-legged men who climbed Helvelyn, lazy doleite half wits
who spent £8.000 on ITV Play, the man who can juggle with ten CDs,
dogs/cats/hamsters born with any number of legs except four, and old women
who've finally been reunited with their twin after 80 years, not to mention
those bloody people who come up from London to Yorkshire for the first time
in their lives to plug their dreadful books) then there would be time to
have all the news from all areas, which would be far better. Why do they
think that because I live in Rotherham I'm not interested in what happens in
Hull or Leeds? I go to both places regularly.

What a bummer! And there we were hoping that everyone would need a new
aerial.

No one knows. They could end up as HD muxes, or SD quiz channels. Depends
on whether they get auctioned off and/or who buys them.
