Freeview reception at AB39 2LU

Terrain between AB392LU and Freeview masts

For reliable and stable Freeview reception, you need an unobstructed path between the TV aerial on your roof and the digital TV transmitter.

The diagrams below show the transmitters you can get a signal from - in order from best to worst. The blue line tests the line-of-sight between an aerial 10 metres above ground level (the line is red if there is an obstruction in the line-of-sight). You may be able to improve reception by raising the aerial higher - for safety's sake consult a reputable aerial installer if you need rooftop access. See below the diagrams for advanced options including selecting the receiver aerial height.

The terrain information (from Ordnance Survey and GIS) does not include forestation (where leaf cover changes with the seasons) or city buildings. The line-of-sight line can appear curved as this straight line moves over the Earth's surface.

When you click on a diagram, you will see map with the location selected shown with this symbol: .Internet Explorer 9+, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari required.

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.
