Freeview reception at BS24 9LP

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.


map is loading, please wait...
There are 4 mobile phone masts within 1.5km of BS249LP (page shows closest 10)

 EE,  Multiple operators,  O2,  3,  Vodafone,  location on line-of-sight,  Selected location,  Freeview transmitter,  Freeview light transmitter,  Engineering/fault today.

These icons show the potential locations for 4G-at-800MHz services that may interfere with Freeview reception at some point from 2013 to 2017 when the 4G 800MHz services start.

Mr K S Simpson: Which transmitter are you actually tuned into?

Mr K S Simpson: I don't follow you. The transmitter to the west is Emley Moor which broadcasts Look North (Yorkshire). Look North (East Yorkshire & Lincolnshire) is from Belmont.

Terrain between ( m a.g.l.) and (antenna m a.g.l.) - Optimising UK DTT Freeview and Radio aerial location


It is a plot of the terrain between you (on the left) and the transmitter (on the right). The ground rises up and about 1 mile away is 40m above your ground level (around about Messingham Road). This is probably why the aerials in your area generally point to Emley Moor.

You can of course try for reception from Belmont so as to get Look North (East Yorkshire & Lincolnshire), but be aware that the situation is not ideal.

I would also add that it wasn't until just over 10 years ago that Emley Moor and Belmont became different regions as far as BBC regional news is concerned. So when many aerials were put up each transmitter broadcast the same output (with the exception of opt-outs within Calendar) Now they are different it might be worth going for Belmont, whose reception isn't likely to be as easy but which will give the more local news.

Have you checked that your tv aerial connections are good? where is your aerial is it on the roof or in the loft? Dave tends to be on the lower power transmitter.... but as i seen where your map is you should be able to get it with no problems.... but like i say check everything in your home 1st it can be something simple like poor aerial cable connection or your aerial moved slightly that does cause channels to break up sometimes

hope this helps

gemma stone: Judging by prediction you are in a poor reception area as far as getting the Commercial channels goes. Most aerials on your road are seen (pn Streetview, May 2009) to face the Faversham relay transmitter which does not carry Dave and other Commercial services.

Can you confirm that your aerial does NOT point to Faversham (its elements will be vertical [up/down]) at 209 degrees? What direction does it point in and is it horizontal or vertical?

gemma stone : In addition to that said by Dave Lindsay regarding the Faversham relay. If you are also unable to receive (10) ITV3 or (18) 4Music, then your Freeview will most likely be from the Faversham relay, neither programme transmitted by this station.

That said, one or two aerials in your area would appear to be pointing towards the Bluebell Hill transmitter @ 16miles / 268 degrees, and although indications are that reception from anywhere other than Faversham is liable to be iffy, should by any chance you are able to receive ITV3 or 4Music? then it could be from Bluebell Hill, therefore carry out a "manual" tune on Mux C39 the transmitter used by Dave / Pick TV etc.
