Perhaps when they do it they could up Mux 2 to 30kw or something?! Nah,
that'd be asking too much!

Or prehaps move it to a channel in Group A, which has been mentioned as a
posibility.

apparently that has been given the go ahead in the UK, but has to go to

some
european tv broadcasting something or other before they can move it

if they move it to group A then i've got a full house!

I sent Meridian an email complaining about this yesterday and they said they
would pass it on to NTL.

Do you know the european organisation that has to approve it?

Maybe they are the ones to pressurise!

Having said this, proposals to change the frequency of Multiplex 2 from
Rowridge are currently being progressed. Channel 28 has been identified
as a possible alternative to the existing frequency and would allow
viewers to receive Multiplex 2 with their existing Group A aerials. Any
change to a transmitter's transmission frequency has to be agreed within
the UK planning system and must also be agreed with the UK's European
neighbours.

Currently the proposal has received UK clearance and is with the
European planners for agreement. Until that is received there is no
certainty that any change will take place.

large wideband aerial didn't make any difference to me (in upton poole) ,
nor did low loss cable etc.. , all other signals are 5 out of 5 (well sdn
should be next week) get itv2 thro the old cable point anyway so i can live
without mux2!

I'd go for both preferably. Although move to group A is what I want as it
saves me risking my neck on the roof at some point to change to a wideband
aerial.
