Freeview reception at AB51 5QX

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.

Everytime I enter a post code etc. regardless of where in the UK this shows me that my transmitter is the Crystal Palace one. Well I've got news for you - it isn't! I certainly do not receive signals from London in Shetland, Aberdeen or near the South Coast of England. Get it sorted please.

Similarly Bourne End in Bucks mostly gets Freeview reception from the Wooburn Freeview Lite relay of transmitters/tv/Crystal_Palace">Crystal Palace and NOT the High Wycombe relay. If you look at the map generated by putting in my postcode, in fact most of Bourne End is showing as having no reception at all from the High Wycombe transmitter! Please look into it (or advise who does). An explanation of what's gone wrong would also help as if it's just one person responsible for this tools accuracy when there are more than 1000 transmitters to be taken into account, that's a little different to if it's a large corporation responsible for feeding the information and accuracy checking.

I entered my postcode PH23 3NA and you gave me the Light Freeview coverage from the Grantown relay - however I note some houses in the area do have aerials pointing to Knock More (horizontally polarised) which will give them the FULL Freeview service.
Can you tell me what type of aerial would be needed for Full Freeview at PH23 3NA (Lochanhully Woodland Club, Carrbridge)?
Thank you.

In the SP2 (Bulbridge) region of Salisbury we're lucky if we get a good signal for more than a few days a month. On those good days both signal strength and quality are between 8 and 10 on all channels. Then, SOMETHING happens and the signals drop to 5 or lower and the quality between 0 and 3. This makes all channels 'no signal' or unwatchable except for those on Ch50. We've had new aerials and local pro's in who offer no explanation. It's not a weather issue cuz the (default) bad signal can kick in in an instant irrespective of conditions. Ch60 is at 786 MHz so not in 4G range. I can only assume that the explanation lies with the transmitter since, when the signal is good it's very good. Then it drops in the blink of an eye.

This problem began about a year ago with an occasional bad signal day. Since then, the good/bad ratio has shifted to the reversal we have now.

Needless to say, I have better things to do than monitor unwatchable TV channels so I can't be precise but, since new year I doubt we've had more than 10 days of good signal.

Rant over.
