|After the transfer of the BBC TV 405-line service to Crystal Palace on 28th March 1956, Alexandra Palace wasn't used for any broadcast services until a UHF TV relay station entered service on 4th November 1982. DSO was on the 4th and 18th April 2012.|
On 13th November 1989 an FM radio transmitter was added on 103.3 MHz, shared by London Greek Radio & WNK. Choice FM on 107.1 MHz entered service on 17th April 2000.

If you think 2 November is a familiar date it was also chosen as the starting date for Channel 4.
