Robert Taylor: No. See:

Want to know which transmitters will carry extra Freeview HD? | High definition | ukfree.tv - 11 years of independent, free digital TV advice

Oliver's Mount, like Keighley and Idle which are also full-service transmitters in Yorkshire, will not carry the two new HD multiplexes.

Bilsdale will carry them, albeit that they will be on lower power than the other channels. However, judging by the predictor that is probably not possible either.

Robert Taylor: The problem is that signals carry over a long distance to cause enough interference to prevent reception, even if they aren't strong enough to be receivable. Just because frequencies aren't being used at your chosen transmitter, doesn't mean they *can* be used there - if they were, they would cause reception problems elsewhere. Or, alternatively, because they are being used elsewhere, that would cause too much interference for them to be used effectively where you are.

Channels 50, 55 and 59 are in use at Weaverthorpe, Whitby, Castleton, and a number of locations in West Yorkshire. Channels 51 and 52 are in use at Emley Moor. C56 is relatively lightly used across the country, which is why it will be available for a local service, but (if used) it will broadcast from different aerials further down the mast, and pointing only at Scarborough itself, not the surrounding area.

Signals also carry strongly enough over the sea to still be a problem in northwest Europe. For the 600 MHz band, Ofcom have had to co-ordinate Olivers Mount with Holland. However, the cost of implementation relative to the amount of coverage achievable means that Olivers Mount is not in the set of 30 transmitters that will be getting the service.

The only space we have in the plan to put new channels is the so-called '600 MHz band', channels 31 to 38 (550 - 614 MHz). This is because Ofcom planned a gap there, so it could be sold off. It became clear that since this wasn't co-ordinated with any other countries, any hardware would have to be UK-specific, and we're not a big enough market for the mobile phone makers to do a specific build - therefore there was no demand from the networks. As a result, there's now an opportunity - but it has to be done cheaply and quickly, as Ofcom are suggesting they will steal it back in five years' time.

I am writing to ask if there is any news as to the launch date of MadeinTyne&Wear, the new local TV station for North East England. I have looked at their website, which currently says that they are expected to launch in November 2013, when some folks have finished putting up the masts???

Mike Featherstone: January 30th 2014 is indicated as being the starting date on the Pontop Pike transmitter transmitting on C56, however whether or not you will be able to receive it is entirely dependent on your location which is unknown.
