Freeview reception at BT30 6BS


For reliable and stable Freeview reception, you need an unobstructed path between the TV aerial on your roof and the digital TV transmitter. The map below shows the transmitters predicted to provide a signal at this location.

You can click on any transmitter symbol to show the coverage area as a green overlay on the map. Double click on a transmitter symbol to go to the transmitter information page.

You can also view the ten closest potential '4G-at-800' mobile phone masts within 1.5km of the selected location - these masts may be used for 4G-at-800 mobile broadband services from 2013-2015.

Pauline Bell:

It's never advised to retune when you have no signal, it usually just clears your correct tuning and you end up needing to retune again when you have a signal.

Just tuned in a new tv. I dot seem to be picking up any COM4 or COM5 channel. No problem with previous tv. Am I doing something wrong or is there a problem with the transmitter?

Andrew: Do you still get the channels on the old TV if you plug it back in without retuning? We need to know where you are (please provide a full postcode) or which transmitter you're using to be able to check for any reported faults or engineering work.

Andrew:

This could be due to current weather conditions - temperature Inversion/tropospheric ducting to be precise, some of the predictions show there is currently some quite variable but strong conditions affecting parts of central England.
It sometimes comes with high pressure https://www.bbc.co.uk/reception/help-guides/freeview/how-clear-skies-and-fine-weather-can-affect-your-tv-reception & https://www.bbc.co.uk/reception/help-guides/freeview/effect-of-tropospheric-ducting-on-freeview

This type of ducting affects different frequencies by differing amounts in different locations, which is possibly why you are only currently seeing an issue with COMs 4 & 5. It can vary by the second or be stable for much longer periods. It can also affect FM & DAB radio & probably mobile phone signals but not to an extent that people have realised.

If you happen to use the Waltham transmitter, try a manual tune on UHF channels C29 and C37 for those two multiplexes as manual tuning will sometime resolve them when signals are suffering some interference as long as it's not severe at the time.
