Freeview HD, BT Vision, SAORVIEW, YouView

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).

These predictions are based upon a rooftop aerial and depend on the suitability of the aerial, the distance to the transmitters, the power of their signals, the postcode area, and local terrain.

Peter Young : Ref: MikeP's posting, although that said by same when referring to my reply is indeed correct, however the reason why I did not specifically include Rowridge as a possible alternative for reception to Hannington is for the following reasons.

(1) All aerials seen in your area are observed to be pointing towards Hannington, no exceptions having been found.

(2) Checks made using DUK's reception predictor for your location indicates "iffy" (officially variable!) reception from Rowridge on all muxes with the exception of BBC A / D3&4 and BBC B, the possible reason for this being somewhat backed up by the terrain indicator revealing that the signal from Rowridge suffers from an obstruction of a sizeable nature at about 2.5 miles prior to your location.

Although the reception predictors indications have always to be taken with the proverbial "pinch of salt", but when this is coupled to that seen on the terrain indicator then DUK's forecast cannot be completely disregarded.

I would like to know if I should get a zone 1 or zone 2 freesat dish - we have freeview at the moment but the signal is pretty poor as we are in Cadgwith. Any advice/recommendations would be appreciated.

Taz Bradley: Zone 2 dishes are always a better bet by them grabbing that little bit more signal from the satellite over that of a Zone1 dish, likewise are less likely to be affected by heavy thundery type rain etc.

If the position the dish is going to be mounted in has a clear view of the S / S.Easterly skyline then there shouldn't be any problems with reception.

A Zone 2 dish will 'collect' roughly twice the amount of signal strength than a Zone 1 because it is larger. The stronger signal means it will be less affected by heavy rain/snow/hail/etc that diminish the amount of signal arriving at the dish. So a Zone 1 could well be borderline in your part of Kernow in a village I know quite well having enjoyed holidays there several times. (Yes, I'm a 'grockle'!)
A Zone 2 dish, being larger, needs to be carefully mounted on good strong support so it doesn't get moved by the winds and storms and be aimed very carefully as it has a narrower reception angle. You may be lucky to live in a part that is more protected by the surrounding hills, so storms will have less windage effect.

Thank you for that - I too was a grockle up until recently and made the move more permanent... Thanks again..

Previous occupants had a satellite dish - with hindsight we could have used that - but had humax free view so just ignored it... Will definitely be changing to freesat..... Thanks again both for the responses..

jb38: Thanks for the advice, we might have to do that. We have an engineer coming out on Monday, so we'll see what they say.

John Martin: Best policy!, maybe you could post an update with regards to the outcome of the visit, as I will be interested in that said by the engineer.

If though by any chance the reception problem channels referred to have now reverted back to normal? then this is liable to create a problem for the engineer, that is unless he is fully acquaint with the reception situation in your particular area, as if he isn't!, then he will up to a point be working in the dark if said problem channels are indicating well above the lower threshold cut off level.

However, if you look at the blue box on the right hand side of your posting you will see a selection of choices, click on the fifth item down "J's DigitalUK tradeview" this then taking you onto the trade reception predictor that will enable you to view the details of the reception expected from the transmitters that cover your area, namely Waltham and Belmont.

As you will no doubt see Belmont is green all the way, whereas a variable level of reception could be expected from Waltham on SDN (C29) and also similar from COM7 (HD Mux), the low powered (5Kw) L-NOT Mux also being in the category of variable.

By the way, if you hover your mouse pointer over each of the Mux channel numbers (under N) the ERP (power) that the Mux channel is operating on will appear.

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