Freeview reception at ME7 1YF

Terrain between ME71YF 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.Internet Explorer 9+, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari required.Internet Explorer 9+, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari required.

Hi I live in OL2 8GB and last Sunday we lost all the BBC channels. Provider is with You View and we have the aerial located in the loft. We have 3 tvs dotted around the house, and those not using the the You View box with their own in built freeview, work fine. Re-tuned the You View box to no avail. BBC shoudl exist on channel 1 and its not finding it. Just to cloud the issue further, we have recently had solar panels installed as we are south facing, and I am wondering if this has contributed to the problem. Am I right in thinking I could re-position the aerial to point at Winter Hill as I believe it currently looks at the more local Dog Hill transmitter. Any help/advice greatly appreciated.

Paul: I would suspect the solar panels, yes. What do you get if you try selecting UHF channel 46 on the YouView box's manual tuning screen? Do this but don't press the button to add channels/services, instead wait and see what strength/quality you have.

Winter Hill would appear to be really difficult for you owing to the fact that the ground rises immediately -- see this terrain plot:

http://www.megalithia.com/elect/terrain.php?Make=3&ngr=SD943100&bht=10&ngr1=SD660144&daod=726&dname=Winter+Hill&dht=0&go=go

Have a look to see if neighbours have got Winter Hill aerials and perhaps enquire as to how their reception fares. Without question it would have to go outside and may give variable reception, which means it might work at some times of year/times of day/weathers and not others.

In areas such as yours it's possible that one property can get good reception (somehow!) and another can't.
