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).

We are experiencing poor reception on all of the BBC channels, this has been on-going over the past 4-5 weeks.
I've attempted to clear all channels and rescan as advised, but the problem persists.
There are a number of large trees adjacent to the property, but this hasn't been a problem in recent years.
Freeview in integral to the TV.
Any suggestions to improve quality of reception most welcome!

Peter Young: Although in some cases reception problems of the type you are experiencing can be overcome with the addition of a variable gain booster, however, this is totally dependant on the technical nature of the signal being received, insomuch is both the strength and quality of the signal fluctuating? or is the signal strength reasonably constant but the quality is observed to dive up and down? a booster "not" helping in this latter case.

Therefore you should carry out a signal check on the BBC, viewing the level indications for at least a minute or so and noting that seen, then for comparison purposes, carry out the same check on ITV

Further advice dependant on results.

Peter Young: In addition to that said, prior to replying I had checked the reception situation in your area using Megalithia's "land only" terrain indicator, this revealing that the signal from Hannington is obstructed at approx 3 miles prior to your location and not just by the sizeable range of trees on the Northern side of the estate.

The point being, that even although your reception might well have been fine in recent years, its possible that the signal level received could have been dropping off slightly though time for a variety of reasons, such as increased growth / density of tree foliage, moisture content also playing a role.

It would also be interesting to find out if anyone else in your area is also suffering a similar problem with their reception of the BBC channels.

Dave Lindsay: Actually both our signals from Waltham and Belmont are all perfect reception. None is any worse than the other.

Hi, Some of our Freeview has completely gone (Yesterday, Dave, Challenge etc.) and the rest is quite pixilated. The same is happening on both our two televisions and I'm worried the whole lot might give up on us soon. Anyone got any advice?

We have just had one of our two freeview DVD/VHS recorders recently repaired. II wonder if that's anything to do with it? Our postcode is NG32 1LP, if that helps.

Peter Young: If you click on the DigitalUK link, they reckon you should be fine for Hannington, but a bit dodgy for Waltam. On the other hand, the home to mast plot looks fine for both, and if your on Waltham, if anything, your signal might be too strong.

Forget about the DVD recorder - its happening on both your TV's, so its about your reception (although I hope you didn't pay too much for the repair, considering the cost of a new PVR). Are both TV's attached to one aerial? Is there a booster as part of the system? What transmitters are your various TV/recorder tuners tuned into? What signal strength are you reading? And have you checked to make sure that no part of your aerial system is damaged? (the storm was pretty bad where I was).

It sounds like your aerial system has a fault, perhaps a loose connection, water, etc. You might need someone to come and look at it.

MikeB and Peter Young:
I suspect what was meant was that signals from Hannington should be pretty good but that is subject to the growth of the line of trees in between the transmitter and you abode. The other alternative is the use of Rowridge (and not Wlatham as that is in Leicestershire serving the East Midlands!). That is on the Isle of Wight above Newport so you may have a view of that, but not all of Southamption does (some on Town Hill Road don't!).

John Martin: Although you are in an almost perfect location for the reception of Waltham or Belmont via each end of the aerial, however due to the nature of the terrain between Waltham and Denton the signal from that transmitter can be iffy in various places around the Denton area due to being partially (or sometimes fully) obstructed by the terrain, a problem that even applies to certain parts of Grantham and why a number of viewers use Belmont for Reception rather than Waltham.

If the problem referred to persists, then you may find it advantageous to turn your aerial around to face Belmont for maximum efficiency, that is"if" its presently facing Waltham?
