Transmitter Channel Allocations
The frequencies given are for (most) digital MUXES, for analogue channels deduct 3MHz.
Most the transmitter pages on this site (e.g. Crystal Palace) have their own Channel Allocation Guides, but because the coverage areas of most main transmitters are so large they do not represent the receivable frequencies in a particular geographical area in the same way that this one does.
The table below lists the broadcast channels for all the receivable TV transmitters
around Sheffield. Apart from the guides obvious interest to those in the Sheffield
area it serves as a graphical reminder just how crowded the RF (Radio Frequency)
spectrum is, note how the planners have “dovetailed” the various broadcast frequencies
together in an attempt to minimise co-
The various Channel Allocation Guides can be invaluable if you are trying to find
a spare channel for a modulated output (e.g. for a Sky box or CCTV system) to be
added to your TV setup/distribution system without suffering from co-
This reference is interesting but (as with all coverage maps) it can be misleading, see “Line Of Sight”. These particular maps also seem to lack many of the outputs from the smaller repeaters and the restricted radiation patterns of some of the transmitters do not appear.
So all of this should be borne in mind when using them !
The five transmitters on the right hand side of the table below are all small repeaters
with relatively small outputs and coverage patterns, thus the potential for co-
