When the Mendip PSB changeover from C61 to C49 takes place in 2013, my already marginal reception through my group C/D aerial will degrade considerably. I know I'll need an aerial upgrade (and mast head amp possibly). As this will affect many people my area, does anyone know if there's financial help available to meet the cost of this upgrade,

Norman Ansell: You are not in a marginal reception area, you are in the primary one. C49 is still well within group C/D, so you don't need a new aerial.

There is no financial help for this for anyone.

Norman Ansell: Digital UK's trade view suggests that the percentage of locations covered within your national grid square will - after all changes are made across the country - go down from 94% to 92%, for 99% of the time. For 50% of the time, it actually increases from 97% to 98% of locations served.

The 'Good' threshold, for which the planners consider the square to be served, is 70% of locations for 99% of the time. So really, it's not that significant.

Mike/Brian, Thanks for the info. My problem is local trees and the fact that my location (Thornbury) is located in the vale of Berkeley where the lie of the land drops 80 metres below that to the South (and Mendip). Signals do get through under ideal conditions (cold dry night in winter) but on a summer evening when the trees are wet and in full leaf things get marginal. Maybe it's time to get FreeSat.
Thanks again chaps - N

Catherine Meek: If the question relates to a another BBC One and ITV region replacing your native ones then the reason must be that your receiver has tuned to another transmitter. Knowledge of your location, and possibly transmitter your aerial faces, would allow a suggested workaround which may involve unplugging the aerial lead during the part of the scan that the unwanted transmitter broadcasts.
