Most of Hinckley in S.W.Leicestershire has never been able to pick up a useable signal from Waltham(either analogue or digital) infact digital is far worse than the old analogue yet both BBC and ITV claim otherwise and refuse to help. If there are specific news items in Hinckley the teams come out from Nottingham do the interviews and camera shots - yet we can't watch the result .
Don't respond we get it on Virgin Cable (fed from Leicester) or Sky Satellite - the map is for terrestrial coverage from the actual Waltham mast - Freeview
I have asked BBC, ITV, Ofcom and the local Borough Council several times why we cant get a local relay but they both answer that as we have since the 1950's got our terrestrial TV from a strong signal from Sutton Coldfield (earlier ITV-ATV from Lichfield) then we are properly served as Midlands , pity about the so-called 'East Midlands'. So may I suggest you at UK FREE TV go back to the compilers of the east midlands/Waltham transmitter coverage map and ask them to perhaps do a survey based not on fiction but real fact!
