Hi, I'm just retuning after getting the aerial reconnected, been using a loft aerial for Wrexham-Rhos since early April but the outdoor aerial is pointing to The Wrekin (I think).

The only signal I appear to be getting for ITV3, 5* etc. is on C31, which is confusing me because I can't see any of the transmitters listed as useable from Wrexham that are broadcasting on C31. Any ideas where I may be picking up from?

Thanks Braintist.

I think there may be a data error somewhere then (but I could be wrong).

None of the transmitters listed are West Midlands and none of them appear to carry ITV3 on C31.

I've looked on trade info sheet and if I'm reading that right it looks like The Wrekin stays C31 until August but on the transmitter page for The Wrekin it's changed to C24.

Simon Meyers: Briantist's software doesn't really handle the many stages of switchover at some transmitters. These maps only provide 'before' and 'after' views, with the state as at 2007 for the 'before' and the final state at the end of 2013 (as far as it is currently known) for 'after'.

The only exceptions for the 'before' picture I'm aware of are the major changes that occurred at Rowridge, to allow the south-west switchover to start, and at Sheffield, to get out of the way of the HD service from Emley Moor.

For 'after', Brian has incorporated some of the known interim states (particularly Mux D/Arqiva B) but not all of them. This can give a confused picture.

In addition, The Wrekin has always been listed as two sites, with the second set of frequencies (using different aerials, covering a different area to the first set) shown as The Wrekin B. There are a couple of other 'B' transmitters in the system, e.g. Winter Hill B and Dover B. These are again different aerials on the same mast (Winter Hill B shut down when Winter Hill switched over at the end of 2009, but Dover B is still going).
