hmm, that whole 3KTV / Finnet / local operators situation wasn't clear 
for me some time back, thats why I send fi-Salo...

* 3KTV is cable network operator owned by Finnet.
* Finnet is union of the few local operators
* SSP, Salo, is local operator
* Lännen Puhelin, Rauma, is local operator
* Oulun Puhelin, Oulu, is local operator

I am not sure how it exactly goes, but I think local networks are owned 
by local operators, but channel feed (and reference settings) are coming 
from 3KTV. Most local operators uses just those reference channel maps 
given by 3KTV. But there is still some who not, from reason or other. 
Looks like Oulu, Kuopio, Lohja and Kotka are deviating from 3KTV 
reference settings. From this situation, correct way to do this is 
adding files for fi-3KTV, fi-Oulu, fi-Kuopio, fi-Lohja and fi-Kotka. I 
think I will make and send initial tuning files for these missing ones 
using channel map that differs from the reference.

There is old and very readable channel map for clarify this situation:

And if this is not fuzzy enough, I can say that for example Oulun 
Puhelin and Lännen Puhelin are not members of the Finnet anymore... They 
  and some more just left Finnet union and are now known as dna.
