Saorview frequencies reshuffle (700 MHz clearence)

First thanks to The Cush for directing me to the information available from Comreg - in turn I'm listing a table of frequencies that will be used for the Irish DTT network (aka Saorview) once the clearance of the 700MHz band has been completed which is expected to commence in September 2019 and be completed in March 2020.

In this table are all the frequencies cleared for sites in agreement with the UK authorities (Ofcom). Indicated are (where necessary) where the current two Saorview multiplexes are being moved to, allocations for a potential third & fourth multiplex from each site as well as another two frequencies for a fifth & sixth multiplex were it to ever materialise. Basically, any Saorview transmissions between channels 49 and 59 are getting shifted to make way for more mobile phone spectrum for 4G/5G technologies, therefore any transmitter or relay site which has one or two Saorview multiplexes in this channel range will require a retune at least; in some cases an aerial change may be needed.

All sites have at least six frequencies cleared. A few have either seven or nine frequencies cleared. Information is listed under the following headers...

Transmitter: self explanatory.

Current: The two frequencies between 21 - 59 presently used for Saorview transmissions at that site, Mux 1 named first then Mux 2.

Future: The two frequencies between 21 - 48 that the site will use to broadcast both current Saorview multiplexes; these are not necessarily listed in multiplex order

Mux 3: In the event of a possible third Saorview multiplex being launched, this is the frequency assigned by Comreg at this site (subject to change).

Mux 4: In the event of a possible fourth Saorview multiplex being launched, this is the frequency assigned by Comreg at this site (subject to change).

Muxs 5 & 6: Should we ever get a 5th & 6th multiplex up and going, these are the (at least) two frequencies assigned to each site (subject to change).

ERP kW: The maximum effective radiated power for each multiplex that has been cleared to radiated from the site, in kilowatts - in some cases the in service maximum ERP will be lower e.g. Three Rock & Kippure are cleared for 125kW, but both at present radiate at half that power.

Polarity: Either Horizontal or Vertical. As far as I can tell, there are no polarity changes from current transmissions.

Notes: Additional notes for each site wherever viewers for each site should expect no change in transmission parameters to affect them (at least for the current two Saorview multiplexes), wherever a retune is required, and wherever an aerial change may be necessary (in some cases current grouped aerials may be fine but this may change if a 4th, 5th or 6th multiplex is launched).

For a few relay sites no details are currently available, this is because these sites were low powered and far enough away from the UK and France not to require international coordination - such sites using frequencies between 49 to 59 will require retuning that should be announced in due course.

Just to give some help with the notes...

No change expected: The current two Saorview multiplexes at this site are planned not to be changing frequency during the 700 MHz clearance (not counting any third or further multiplex launches).

Retune required: The current two Saorview multiplexes at this site will at least for one frequency be changed, however no receiving aerial changes are expected to be needed to receive them (not counting any third or further multiplex launches).

Aerial change X -> X (or K): Any grouped UHF receiving aerials (B, C/D or E) affected by a frequency reallocation may require to be changed to continue receiving Saorview services after March 2020. In cases where no frequency changes for Muxs 1 & 2 are made or just a retune is required, a potential third multiplex should also be able to be received in the same aerial group; muxs 4-6 however may lie outside the current aerial group for the site. In the majority of cases where group B, C/D or E aerials are in use and new allocations for muxs 1-3 are listed, existing aerials may work OK for frequencies that are only slightly out of band - however sites where Saorview multiplexes are currently in C/D frequencies and are being moved to Group A frequencies will in theory suffer the largest risk of failing to receive the new frequencies, but replacement should only really be needed in case of reception failure noted during the simulcast period.
Where it says "Aerial change X -> X or K", this means that changing the aerial to a new group will be fine for the first three multiplexes, but should muxs 4, 5 or 6 be enabled then a Group K aerial will likely be required to receive all multiplexes broadcast. Should you require an aerial change because of the frequencies at the site are being changed once the simulcast period at least is under way, best practice will be to install a Group K aerial unless you have either tricky reception conditions that might benefit from using a narrower Group aerial (A or B), or are maybe diplexing with another UHF aerial to receive DTT services from Northern Ireland or Wales (Freeview).

In cases at sites where 7 or 9 frequencies have been cleared, there may be two or more frequencies indicated for a certain multiplex value.

Also not all six/seven/nine multiplexes from each site have equal radiation patterns, even though they are all cleared for the same maximum ERP. In theory Muxs 1 & 2 for the current Saorview services will occupy the "clearest" frequencies from each site that is the least likely to suffer from co-channel interference or from major directional restrictions. In most cases Mux 3 is cleared to share the same radiation properties/restrictions as Mux 1 & 2 do (there are a few exceptions, the main one being at Mount Leinster). However Muxs 4-6 may have more restrictive directional properties for transmitting, as well as more likely to be subject to co-channel interference.

Please note: I've compiled this only as information to be shared so Saorview viewers can know what to expect if they have to retune or in a few cases need a new receiving aerial - I'm not interested in this case about the likelyhood, wherever likely, unlikely or over **INSERT PERSON HERE** 's dead body, of future multiplexes actually being launched or broadcast on the Saorview platform.

If the layout above is confusing you, I've attached a .txt file of the details that should open nicely in Notepad or other text reader for your device.

P.S. If the above post appears blank to you, then click on the "legacy site" link near the top right corner of the page. You should hopefully then see it (there seems to be a problem in the new-ish boards.ie responsive skin that hides posts that contain items inside the "code" BBcode).

Thanks TAFKAlawhec ....... it appears some users will need to change their aerials if they presently have band-specific aerials.

Those with wide-band aerials should be ok?
Might need a filter?

I wonder how much issue it could cause people using Group-T aerials (or those with WB aerials and a 4G filter)?

They may need new filters, depending on location and associated interference, I imagine

This is what 2RN said in a 2014 Comreg consultation submission (prior to DTT 700Mhz replanning) - "it would be prudent to expect and plan for at least 3, or possibly 4, high quality national multiplexes in Ireland. 2RN recognises that the Broadcasting Act 2009 specifies that 6 multiplexes must be accommodated. This requirement clearly needs revision, and while it contains no direct reference to spectrum, it was enacted at a time when the entire 470 to 862MHz band was available for broadcast use"

The current Broadcasting Act obliges ComReg to provide spectrum for a minimum number of DTT multiplexes. Two multiplexes for RTÉ and a minimum of four commercial muxes to be awarded by the BAI.

So basically what they've done is coordinate 6 multiplexes as required by the Broadcasting Act but give coverage priority for 3/4 multiplexes.

Possible Mux 3 frequency for Clermont Carn (C39) would interfere with NIMM from Black Mountain which is on same frequency.

Black Mt. moves to UHF 33 at clearance.

So basically what they've done is coordinate 6 multiplexes as required by the Broadcasting Act but give coverage priority for 3/4 multiplexes.
From gathering together what I've read in the various documents, The Republic of Ireland have adopted almost the same principle as used in the UK for declaring a network of three "PSB" multiplexes at each site with the higher coverage availability, with three "COM" multiplexes at each site where required with secondary coverage concerning co-channel interference as well as directional restrictions where needed.

In addition both authorities have agreed to adopt a common set of nine "group of three" frequencies at each site (with amendments at some sites) which are reflected in the spreadsheet files...

(Group) - (Frequencies)

1 - 21, 24, 27
2 - 22, 25, 28
3 - 23, 26, 30
4 - 29, 31, 37
5 - 32, 34, 35
6 - 33, 36, 48
7 - 39, 42, 45
8 - 40, 43, 46
9 - 41, 44, 47

The derogations...

3A - 23, 26, 29 (Mt. Leinster uses this)
4A - 30, 31, 37
6A - 32, 33, 48
7A - 40, 42, 45

So for example Three Rock has Group 3 frequencies for PSB and Group 6 for COM (though UHF33 currently used for Mux 2 is designated as a COM frequency rather than PSB), while for both Clermont Carn & Truskmore Group 7 is used for PSB multiplexes and Group 6 for COM.

I wouldn't be surprised if some more reshuffling is done at a few sites to move current Saorview multiplexes to different frequencies that they've been cleared for - IIRC Comreg don't seem to want to use channel 48 unless it's for a sixth multiplex (in a similar fashion to channel 60 not being presently used), so there's a good chance multiplex 1 from Maghera could change.

Only at Clermont Carn is there a restriction on UHF 48, where it'll only be used for a 6 mux plan and only then with 2 years advance notice to the UK. Three other sites will use it unrestricted on the 2 mux plan including Maghera, three further sites for Mux 3 and three for Mux 4.

Less restrictions on the use of UHF 48 in relation to the 700 MHz mobile network base stations in comparison to UHF 60 for the 800 MHz stations due to the location of the of the base station downlink in the band. In the 800 MHz band it sits just above UHF 60 but for the 700 MHz band it sits at the upper end of the band (the old UHF 57 upwards), well away from UHF 48.

The Dept of Communications mentioned this on their site

Quote:
Irish planners have completed replanning to clear TV from the channels 49-60. They worked in conjunction with their UK colleagues on this task. On the whole the plan has 9 UHF channel groups, each with 3 channels. The Department expects that TV services will clear the channels 49-60 by April 2020, creating a second digital dividend. Associated with that will be much tighter reuse of frequency channels. The Department does not guarantee reception of TV services outside their core service area. Some households currently receiving UK TV signals from Northern Ireland or Wales will no longer be able to do so. This is because of transmissions from Irish TV transmitters in neighbouring areas.

2 new Saorview transmitter sites - planning permission

As part of the DTT replan 2 new Saorview transmitter sites are required because of the reduction in coverage from existing transmitters due to tighter reuse of frequency channels.

The new transmitters are to cover Wicklow town and Drogheda. This and the Kippure height increase has been discussed in the UHF thread over the last 12 months or so. Drogheda coverage was of particular interest to lucernarian.

The proposed frequency plan for the 2 sites
Wicklow: UHF 29 & 31, Vertical, 500W
Drogheda: UHF 29 & 31, Vertical, 250W

Back on Oct 23rd planning applications were submitted to the Wicklow and Meath planning authorities for the new transmitter sites.

Wicklow Co Co: 171288

Development Description:
development consisting of: Telecommunications infrastructure comprising of; the replacement of an existing 23m lattice tower with antenna on top (approx. overall height 26m), with a 30 metre lattice tower (with antenna on top, overall height 32.7m), equipment cabin, cabinets, ancillary equipment, fencing and all associated site works. The development will form part of 2RN's digital terrestrial television (DTT) and radio broadcast infrastructure. It will also be made available to over interested parties; mobile telephone and broadband operators, private communications companies and the emergency services

Development Address:
Ballynabarney Td, Rathnew, Co. Wicklow

Sheephouse Td., Donore, Droghdea, Co. Meath
The Wicklow site was given conditional permission last Friday.

The Meath site is still awaiting a decision which is due by Dec 17th. The OPW has submitted an objection to the proposed location of the mast due to it proximity to the Brú na Bóinne heritage sites and the Oldbridge Estate and Battle of the Boyne site.
