Storeton Wales began transmitting the three PSB MUXES (C/DH) in October 2009 but only from the West round to the South. This TX replaced the three relays at Flint, Bagillt and Holywell which ceased transmitting at switchover. Most people on Storeton Wales actually have their aerial on Winter Hill, so they also pick up these Welsh Language MUXES (from Storeton Wales) with that same antenna. As Winter Hill is changing from C/DH to KH (because of the 700MHz clearance) Storeton Wales will likewise change (in Q1 2019).

Was an AV group for analogue and still is AV for digital even after its 700MHz clearance (Oct 17).

Digital UK : Torosay transmitter

For Torosay we recommend the DM log for strong signal areas, the Log36 or Yagi18K for medium signal areas, the Yagi18A or XB10A for poor signal areas and the XB16A for those with the most marginal signals. The dimensions and test performance of the aerials can be found on the relevant tables.

Tunbridge Wells  TQ 607 440, 1m SE of T/Wells.

All 6 MUXES are transmitted at 4kW

Was a BV group for analogue and BV for digital, but, at the 700MHz clearance in Q3 2018, it will become a KV (CHs 29 to 47). All decent B group aerials should continue to work fine however.

Digital UK : Tunbridge Wells transmitter

For Tunbridge Wells we recommend the DM log for strong signal areas, the Log 36 for medium signal areas, the Yagi18K or XB10K for poor signal areas and the XB16K for those with the most marginal signals. The dimensions and test performance of the aerials can be found on the relevant tables.

Waltham  SK 809 233, 18 miles SE of Nottingham.

MUXES 1 to 3 are transmitted at 50kW and MUXES 4 to 6 at 25kW.

Was a C/DH group for analogue but for full digital reception Waltham is now a wideband. The 700MHz clearance is due at Waltham in Q1 2020 when it is due to change from a  wideband / T grp to an A group on CHs 29 to 37 (excl MUXES 7 & 8). Almost all existing widebands will continue to work, but, for those with poor signals, swapping to an A group will pay dividends

Digital UK : Waltham transmitter

For Waltham we recommend the DM log for strong signal areas, the Log 36 or Yagi18K for medium

signal areas, the DY14WB for poor signal areas. The dimensions and test performance of the aerials can be found on the relevant tables.  See Waltham Graph.

Whitehawk Hill  TQ 330 045, Eastern suburbs of Brighton.

All 6 MUXES are transmitted at 4kW.

Was a C/DV group for analogue and still is C/DV for all its digital output. But, at the 700MHz clearance in Q2 2019, it will become a KV (CHs 32 to 48).

Digital UK : Whitehawk Hill transmitter

For Whitehawk Hill we recommend the DM log for good signal areas, the Log 36 or Yagi18K for medium signal areas, the Yagi 18E  or the DY14WB for poor signal areas. The dimensions and test performance of the aerials can be found on the relevant tables.


Winter Hill  SD 660 144, 5 miles NW of Bolton.

All 6 MUXES are transmitted at 100kW.

Was originally a C/DH group for analogue and stayed a C/DH for digital (excl MUXES 7 & 8). However, in Q1/Q2 2020, due to the 700MHz clearance, it will become an A group (CHs 29 to 37) ! Most wideband aerials will continue to work, however, many older C/D aerials may struggle in poorer areas. The good news is that those with poor signals who swap to an A group aerial will get significantly better reception even than with a wideband.
