Freeview reception at W2 6DH


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.

Nigel: Belmont at approx 43 miles / 107 degrees is indicated as providing the best signal level in your area over that from Emley Moor @ 21 miles/ 283 degrees, the station your aerial is possibly facing towards?.

However, although your aerial might not be facing towards Belmont, its only around 5 degrees off what's known as reverse (or rear) pick up, some types of aerials being better than others when operating in this way, and so if your Freeview device has a "manual" tuning facility? you can use this to check if its worthwhile (or not) to swing your aerial around 180 degrees or so to face towards Belmont.

But though, "before" carrying out any tests it has to be ascertained that your Freeview device is capable of receiving HD transmissions, insomuch, are you able to view BBC HD 101-105 etc? because if not, this will be the reason for the 18 channel difference between your neighbours and you, likewise abandon the undermentioned.

However, should you be able to view those channels? carry out the following procedure.

Being, enter Mux 33 (Belmont's COM7) into the manual tuning box but do "not" press search or scan, as this allows the tuner time to indicate if any signal is being received no matter how low it might be. If though a signal of around 50% strength / quality is indicated, then press search or scan to store it in the EPG listings, although it will likely be stored up in the 800 range.

If successful, carry out the procedure again but this time enter C35 (Belmont's COM8).

Further advice as required.

ofcom 700mhz clearance

Evening all

I have been looking at the frequency changes that are coming due to the 700mhz Clearance and have found a link that talks about the Winter Hill changes, however the frequency changes listed on this site for Winter Hill differ from them listed in the link below!


Ofcom seeks input on Freeview changes: 20 million will need to retune - a516digital


Just wondering if anyone knows if this link is correct or not??

Any info much appreciated
Andy

Andy: a516's site is generally pretty reliable. I've no idea where the data for future frequency allocations comes from for this site as Ofcom haven't made any firm announcements of future allocations yet.

StevensOnln1: the frequency allocations reffered to in the a516digital article appear in an Ofcom report "Rooftop TV Aerial Performance in Manchester" published on 31st March 2016.

@KMJ,Derby: I was at a meething at the Digital Television Group last week and everything seems to be on course for DSO2 to happen as planned, perhaps a little earlier.

Of particular note will be COM7 and COM8 moving to two single-frequency networks on C55 and C57 (I think).

michael Hart: Either you're watching ITV HD which doesn't yet have a Tyne Tees version or the aerial at your new house is receiving it's signal from a transmitter in the Granada region. If you post a full postcode we'll be able to see which transmitters you should be able to receive and offer further advice.
