Following the Bilsdale transmitter mast fire on August 10, Julian has received regular updates from Arqiva on their attempts to repair the mast and restore service to those who have been affected in York and North Yorkshire.
In their latest update, Arqiva has said:
- They will be carrying out a full test of the new, temporary mast at Bilsdale tomorrow, Tuesday 12 October.
- Providing the final tests tomorrow are successful, the new Bilsdale mast will be operational from 6am onwards on Wednesday 13 October. From that time, viewers will need to retune their TV to restore services.
- From installation, there will be a full set of Freeview channels will be available, a stronger signal which is less prone to weather disruption and another 50,000 households will be able to receive a signal.
