In reply to MikeP, I turned my aerial to point at Ridge Hill. I got no ITV or ITVHD at all.
I repointed at Mendip and noted that ITV was indeed West but it was ITVHD that was Central. Very odd unless there are very peculiar upper air conditions.
Whichever direction I pointed the aerial I got the same 11 channels on Channel34 and all of them were at least 10 times the strength of all the other channels (some 140 or so) But these 11 were a really weird set including Al Jazeera Arabic and jewellery Making. As there are such strong signals why can't they be used for the important channels?

I live near Westbury on Severn and have always pointed my aerial almost due south towards the Mendip transmitter in order to receive the West regional programmes.
However after a recent re-tune it produced a most peculiar result. Channel 103 ITV HD is now what I call 'Midland' ie weather forecasts are for areas around Birmingham. I would have expected to have had to turn my aerial 180 degrees if I had wanted this. Has someone made an error?
