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).

Dave Lindsay,

Update:

I think I've sorted it.
I've fashioned a compass out of a cup of water, a small piece of paper and a pin, and checked the aerial alignment.
It was out by about 10-12 degrees, so I've re-aligned and now all the channels have come back and (so far) are behaving well.

I still don't know why the problem started though - as I said, I've had exactly the same set-up for 7 years...

Anyway, thanks for your help.

Lee

I Cannot receive channel 23 as I receive transmission from Darvel. Is there any plan to transmit channel 23 from Darvel.

Hi
I live in Aldershot. I can only receive London news on both ITV & BBC but I want to receive news for this area which is, I believe from Meridian for ITV. Other people in this area seem to have this. Can you help me please?

Keith Chappell: I have to say, it's not looking great. How and where are they receiving it from? Those who have satellite (Freesat/Sky) will have it.

Hannington is located beyond Basingstoke and carries BBC South and ITV Meridian (Thames Valley). But in the direction of Hannington the ground goes upwards so you are really pushing your luck to try for it.

Midhurst also carries BBC South but has ITV Meridian (West) rather than ITV Meridian (Thames Valley). Line-of-sight is obstructed by the high ground at Hindhead.

One of the most useful sources of information as to what you may be able to receive is where your neighbours' aerials are pointing. Judging by Google Streetview, most aerials point to Guildford, which carries BBC London and ITV London, as does Crystal Palace. The Guildford-facing aerials are vertical and judging by their size, and in some cases height, I'd say reception isn't easy. That said you would appear to have line-of-sight to Guildford at 7.5 miles, so I can only think that the transmitter doesn't put its full 2kW out in your direction. Indeed, the post-digital switchover coverage map is here and you are officially outside it:

http://tx.mb21.co.uk/mapsys/map.php?mapid=97

The Crystal Palace aerials are horizontal and a bit anti-clockwise of the Guildford ones.


"If" you can receive from Hannington (or Midhurst) then be aware that reception quality "may" vary by time of day, time of year and depending on the weather. For that reason I would always keep the existing London-region aerial.

Indeed, I'll add another layer to this: The COM signals aren't as good from Hannington and Midhurst as the PSB channels. The PSB (Public Service Broadcaster) ones carry BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and some sisters of ITV and Channel 4. For most Hannington/Midhurst viewers this is fine and they can pick all channels up reliably. However, some will have intermittent reception of the COMs, either because of their lower transmission power and/or interference from another transmitter. I think that if you're pushing it to get the Hannington PSBs then you may not get reliable reception of its COMs. In such circumstances you may be able to combine two aerials, but this is only possible when UHF channel/frequency allocations permit. For example, if your current aerial is on Crystal Palace you could have a second one on Hannington and combine the two (assuming you can receive from Hannington which I'm not at all sure you can). This would allow you to watch PSBs from Hannington (including your desired BBC and ITV regions) and COMs from Crystal Palace. It's possible to combine Midhurst+Crystal Palace, but you couldn't combine Guildford with either Hannington or Midhurst. The combining approach would also give you a back-up if your prefered regional transmitter wasn't available (due to poor reception).

Please post a question, answer or commentIf you have Freeview reception problems before posting a question your must first do this Freeview reset procedure then see: Freeview reception has changed, Single frequency interference, and Freeview intermittent interference.

If you have no satellite signal, see Sky Digibox says 'No Signal' or 'Technical fault'

If you have other problems, please provide a full (not partial) postcode (or preferably enter it in box at the top right) and indicate where if aerial is on the roof, in the loft or elsewhere.
