Terrestrial transmission page of “arquiva” (spx). They bought out the transmission arm of NTL, who bought the ex ITV (IBA) transmitters in 1997. Also bought out National Grid Wireless in Sept 2009.

Digital UK have some useful info, also see Regional Transmitters (set on Yorkshire but the others are available via drop down menu), very useful. The latter also has the launch dates of all the new MUXES, interesting to those with mild autistic tendencies, such as myself (and most other men…..).
I invite other similar websites to set up reciprocal links with us but emphasise they must be of similar content, ideally RF reception but if not then generally technical. The salient point being is it a site I or my readers might be interested in ? Could webmasters of sites not conforming to these criteria please save their time and mine by not requesting a reciprocal link.
Thank you and goodnight.
