Just want to know why being North Lincolnshire that I can not receive local news for my area ie Look North for East Yorkshire and Humberside only getting West Yorkshire plus South Yorkshire news.

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.

Follow this link:

http://www.megalithia.com/elect/terrain.php?Make=3&Transmitters=TF218836+376&ngr=SE877090&bht=10&ngr1=TF218836&daod=376&dname=Belmont&dht=0&go=go

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.
