By providing a full postcode (such as W1A 1AA), national grid reference (for example SE123456) or latitude, longitude pair (like 54, -0.5) this page will provide a map, terrain plot and detailed information of the location showing the UK and RoI television transmitters that it is possible you receive Freeview, Freeview HD, Youview, BT Vision and Saorview from.
 

(Don't know your postcode? Find it at Post Office Postcode finder).

UK Free TV uniquely shows you transmitter coverage maps, aerial to transmitter terrain plots, the closest 10 mobile phone masts (for possible 4G-at-800 interference) as well as tabulated information (sorted by direction, by received signal strength, by frequency, by service names or by transmitter name).

You could try looking at http://www.satcure.co.uk/…htm. Satcure do a wide range of aerial and satellite dish equipment. There are other suppliers - but I have found Satcure to be very reliable and give good swervice.

Coax attenuators are available in different 'strengths' - the larger the number the greater the degree of signal reduction. It is often an advantage to place a male to female coaxial flylead after the attenuator and plugged into the socket on the TV/PVR. This being intended to keep the weight/load on the socket as low as possible.

It would be worth checking the strengths of each of your signals, the aim being to have all greater than 70% but not as high as 90%, the signal quality being related to having enough signal without having too much - which is where an attenuator come in handy.

Letus know how you get on.

Dear UK Free TV
I don't know if you've covered this, but I've been stuck researching since the last Freeview New Service Retune 26/6/15. A lot of older "Set Top Boxes", such as my BUSH DVB680, do not list the Com7 services in the EPG. That means they cannot access Central Area's Channel 32 and won't receive BBC4 HD or other new service. I got a work-round for the earlier HDs; just manually scan Channel 22, so 32 won't overwrite them, resulting in no HDs on the box. So, even if software updates are coming through the antenna, the older boxes cannot read them.
Why the BBC puts out channels in two places, heaven only knows. But if they confine HD to UHF 32, the BUSH box and other old equipment won't get any HDs.

I am recieving a varying signal on channels 10,20,24,48 and 61. At best the signal strength is a lot lower than the BBC/ITV channels. Then assuming I can get a signal at all, I can lose it at 7.00pm - channel 61 ( when recording MASH and approx 9.30 - channel 20 ( when recording New Tricks/ Rebus).

Is this an economy move at the transmitter or are you trying to lift my viewing tastes?

Or is there something I can do to improve the signal strength? I livo on Chalford Hill .The Chalford mast is visible from my garden, normally no issue. I already have a chimney top mast /latest arial and amplifier.

Suggestions please??

Keith Bullimore: The EPG channel numbers referred to are associated with COM 4 /5 and 6 multiplexes as transmitted by Mendip, Chalford Hill by being a Freeview Light station, not transmitting COM channels, thereby not coming into the equation.

As far as your reception problem is concerned, a quick check made on the signal path from the Mendip transmitter (@ 39miles /211degrees) to your location as having to pass over some rather dense woodland located at only a short distance away from your area, a situation that nearly always results in reception being prone to reacting to not only seasonal changes in weather conditions, but also to changes in any vegetation (trees) that the signal has to pass over.

Although you have mentioned signal strength, you should carry out a signal quality and strength check on the aforementioned COM channels, observing the quality for a couple of minutes or so for any signs of it diving up and down, or indeed dropping out all together, the COM channel numbers being as follows /

COM4 / C48 (690.0 Mhz) - COM5 / C56 (754.0 Mhz) / COM6 / C52 (722.0 Mhz)

By the way, if your TV or box has a manual tuning facility, go into the tuning menu and enter each of the "C" channels in turn, but do "not" press search or scan, because on most equipment this procedure results in the tuner acting like a signal meter indicating the strength and quality of the signal.

Your comment please
Please post a question, answer or commentIf you have Freeview reception problems before posting a question your must first do this Freeview reset procedure then see: Freeview reception has changed, Single frequency interference, and Freeview intermittent interference.

If you have no satellite signal, see Sky Digibox says 'No Signal' or 'Technical fault'

If you have other problems, please provide a full (not partial) postcode (or preferably enter it in box at the top right) and indicate where if aerial is on the roof, in the loft or elsewhere.
