The local mux has just been extended to the Reigate transmitter so I'm able enjoy the delights of a 'local' television channel for the first time - and it's London Live rather than the possibly more relevant That's Surrey. The audio on their 6.00 news programme at the moment is terrible - it sounds like it's being presented from a bathroom.
I'd speculate that LL being broadcast from Reigate is to benefit those who live just inside the M25 who may benefit from a better signal from there instead of Croydon.
It will have a wider effect for coverage, but the only reason Reigate is carrying the London local mux is to restore the service for viewers in the area who risk losing their signal from CP and Croydon as a result of Midhurst adopting Ch35 for one of its muxes this week.
The local muxes unbelievably have the same level of protection as the three PSB muxes. It's a crazy situation
There are plans for the Basingstoke mux to have an additional transmitter for the Farnham area, because of Co channel interference from Mendip!
