Due to the recent Bad Weather and Power Outages which affected both our Analogue Transmitters and also resulted in the delay of getting Programme 231 available on the internet a Repeat Showing of Programme 231 is now online on millstreet.ie or on the LTV2 Facebook Page or you can tune in on your TV tonight Thursday Feb 20 at 10.00pm with a repeat showing next Sunday Evening Feb 23 at 8.00pm
To receive reception one needs to retune analogue settings (available in menu “settings”). When scanning is complete one will now have the new channel – either UHF Channel 30 or UHF Channel 35 (or both in certain areas of Millstreet). All this depends on how strong the signal is in any given area. The UHF Channel 30 signal comes from the Carriganima direction whereas the UHF Channel 35 signal comes from the western side of Millstreet Town. This is now saved and is presently transmitting the EWTN (Religious) Channel.

Some years ago we shared our Snow Tour of Millstreet following one of the coldest Winters we had ever experienced. Last Wednesday, 12th February 2014, Ireland experienced the very significant Storm Darwin with hurricane force winds. Millstreet felt the intensity of the storm between 12.00 noon and 2.00 pm approximately. On Saturday Brendan Murphy and I toured the area to witness and record the aftermath of Storm Darwin. The number of well established trees felled was quite phenomenal. These you will note on our tour which started at Clara Road where we met James L. Moynihan. We then proceeded to Station Road where Con Coakley shared a picture of himself with behind him one of the many trees across the road which blocked traffic access for hours. When we reached the Glebe Road we met with Michael Thornton working on the storm clearance. We next viewed Drishane and Cashman’s Park. We came across large trees the roots of which just left the wet ground and toppled into fields as well as across roads. We also got to record scenes near Kilmeedy and Cloghoula. Everyone with whom we chatted for an LTV2 feature all indicated that they had never experienced such severe hurricane force winds. Hopefully this storm of 2014 will not be experienced again for decades. One uplifting sign we noted on the sunny Saturday – daffodils are beginning to shoot from the ground….Spring is on the way! We hope that you will enjoy observing our Storm Tour 2014 where we share some 47 images of the weather related happening in Millstreet. Special thanks to Brendan Murphy of LTV2 Millstreet who motivated our tour and drove to the various locations. (S.R.)
Here now are the remaining 42 images of the aftermath of continue reading…

As promised we share the first part of our findings following a trip throughout the Duhallow and Sliabh Luachra areas yesterday.
One of the most Common Questions being asked about LTV reception:
“We received quite a good reception on air up to last year…Now we no longer seem to be able to receive any signal. How do we now continue to receive the weekly broadcasts?”
One of the main reasons for this is that we used a VHF transmitter from the Mushera area for years. Use of VHF was no longer permitted from last year thus losing that signal which used to travel far to areas like Taur, Newmarket and could even be received on high ground in areas like Dingle and Castleisland. So now we can only use the UHF signal which does not travel as far as VHF. The new signal we’ve been using in this area is Channel 31 UHF from the Carriganima area (This is on a different frequency from last year). However, lots of areas in Millstreet Town and to the west of the town and beyond could not avail of that signal so Dan Joe Kelleher of LTV suggested that a transmitter placed to the west of the town could pick up the Carriganima signal and redistribute it to a large section of the town and to a large wide area to the west of Millstreet including Gneeveguilla, parts of Rathmore, Knocknagree, the New Line (Rathmore to Sandpit House Road) etc.. Although we did not have funds for this development we decided in the spirit of providing to a wider audience not only LTV2 Millstreet but also LTV1 and the Sunday Specials, to personally finance this extension of the on-air signal. We were also very fortunate to receive the supremely kind permission of a local family to transmit from their setting in ideal conditions. Use of the electricity in constant use for this facility is gauged by meter. The signal from this new transmitter located to the west of the town is proving most successful and is available on Channel 35 UHF. When LTV is not being transmitted Dan Joe broadcasts the Sky Channel EWTN (the religious channel) on a 24/7 basis. Tomorrow we shall share how we found the quality of the signal in the areas we visited and we also explore the very real advantage of online transmission as illustrated by the success of the placing of our weekly LTV2 programmes on You Tube (dedicatedly uploaded by Bernard) making the broadcast available worldwide.
