Just interested in seeing who can pick up this new analogue service on ch40, being TX from their own mast about 200m down the hill from the main tx's on Wharite.

Can you see this Steve? Anyone else?

I was involved with the 13hgz Microwave link and the Mpeg4 encoder
from Studio to Wharite

Signal is pretty good hear considering only a 500 Watt Transmitter
and a lower altitude transmit site on Wharite

tararua tv is definitly on the weak side here ,roughly 1/2 way between wharitre & mt erin. nothing wrong with the rest of the uhf ch s though.

Remember its only 500 watts base power and their tower is much lower down the mountain . Under those conditions its doing very well
PS its much more than 200m lower you are thinking of Mediaworks Herb !!
