No official coverage is planned for the Far North, though that shouldn't stop you from trying for the Auckland transmissions. Try for coverage of Existing analogue VHF/UHF transmissions from the main Auckland sites. Fm radio can also be a good indicator of reception from Auckland sites that are in use.

Signals from Auckland (Waiatarua) can be received as far north as Kaikohe in places.

Back in the early 90’s when the only source for Sky was from Auckland, some people went to the expense and effort of putting up high gain antennas on high masts to get Sky, I recall seeing these in Dargaville, some of the higher places around Whangarei, and Kaikohe.

Parahaki and Horokaka are included in the phase two rollout I believe.

I think people are going to be surprised just where the digital signals turn up.

The problem will be other signals eg analogue in adjacent districts
rather than distance limitations
