2013 - post-switchover changes to Freeview transmission frequencies

To provide for the new mobile broadband services (4G) a number of changes will be made, and these will result in retuning events.

To provide for the new mobile broadband services (4G) a number
Published on by on UK Free TV

The following is mainly a list of changes that will happen after Digital Switchover is complete, as C61 and C62 are being taken for use for new generation mobile broadband services. Also shown are are post-DSO change events.

These will happen during 2013 unless otherwise shown.

Full-service transmitters that change DDR frequencies for a PSB multiplex after switchover (2013)



Full-service transmitters that change DDR frequencies for a COM multiplex after switchover (2013 or earlier)



Full-service transmitters that change DDR frequencies offset after switchover (2013)



More soon.

Great anther round of finding a spare RF frequency for the SKY box, I moved it to 49 after the switchover at Waltham.

Is retuning necessary for just an offset change, or only for a channel number change?

Mark Heselden: The answer is basically no as far as an offset change is concerned, as this is only necessary for channel changes,

On the former mentioned though, it depends on the device (and age of) you are receiving on, and whether or not it has the type of manual tuning menu that enables you to enter exact frequencies, but the offset change will not be noticed on most modern equipment as it will still be within the AFC (automatic frequency control) acceptance range of the tuners used, with the only time I can possibly visualise any problems occurring being in circumstances where a person is receiving a low level of signal coupled to them having a device fitted with a somewhat lesser (older) type of tuner.

Rowridge, Sandy Heath, Sudbury, Heathfield and Tunbridge Wells changes are all just moves from temporary channel allocations to their final allocated channels - they're not part of this DTT Clearance Retrofit programme.

Heathfield and Tunbridge Wells retunes (and power-ups and mode changes) are only two weeks after their DSO 2 dates; Bluebell Hill needs C42 until its own DSO 2 date on the 27th.

Rowridge can't use the allocated 22/25/28 until Crystal Palace DSO 2 as these are used by Mux 2, 1 and B at present. CP will still use these channels for the COM muxes but at 10x current power, offsetting the increased interference from Rowridge.

Sudbury's final channels are currently used at Dover for two low-power muxes and one analogue channel, so Sudbury can't adopt them until Dover completes switchover.

Sandy Heath has to wait for Hemel Hempstead to give up C51 - currently BBC One analogue at Hemel.

Oh, so 4G isn't going to be delayed any further then as we originally feared it would be?

Hi

Does anyone know what time Crystal Palace will go off on the 4th and 18th. I have a 38 year old set (Decca 22") and was hoping to watch and film the end of its career... never outdated with its 6 channel buttons (1 for the video)

Cheers, Rob
