Freeview reception at PL10 1HJ



For reliable and stable Freeview reception, you need an unobstructed path between the TV aerial on your roof and the digital TV transmitter. The map below shows the transmitters predicted to provide a signal at this location.

You can click on any transmitter symbol to show the coverage area as a green overlay on the map. Double click on a transmitter symbol to go to the transmitter information page.

You can also view the ten closest potential '4G-at-800' mobile phone masts within 1.5km of the selected location - these masts may be used for 4G-at-800 mobile broadband services from 2013-2015.

Hi
For the past week I am getting low/no signal in the early mornings, until 10.30-11.00am, by which time the full signal is restored and the all free view tv's in my house work fine.
Are you running tests or at reduced power overnight ?
I can't see it is my equipment as by late morning everything is fine again each day
Please advise

David Moore: As indications are that no engineering work is / or has been taking place at the Sandy transmitter last week then the problem you are experiencing could possibly be down to the normal seasonal night / daytime fluctuations in levels experienced by many viewers residing in non line-of-sight situations such as shown on the terrain indicator as applying in the case of your location, multiple obstructions to the signal path being seen starting from approximately 3.5miles from same.

The effect of these variations are not really noticed by most except in cases where the signal being received is sitting at a level that is not that terribly far above that necessary to resolve a picture, i.e: the reception threshold, and so its really a case of when you refer to "low" or "full" signal what does this represent in strength / quality indications?

The other point I wondered about being, as more than one Freeview TV is involved are all TV's being used fed from a splitter? powered or otherwise!

The obstructions referred to being seen by opening the undermentioned link.

I live in a very rural area on high ground at Telegraph Hill with no neighbours close by on the main A380 between the M5 and South Devon. I have a Panasonic free view HD TV set and get my reception using an outdoor aerial from the Stockland Hill TV mast. It works very well. My partner has been told that if we want to get the additional free view HD channels we will need to change our aerial and have it pointing in a different direction towards a transmitter called Beacon Hill about 15 miles away. I contacted two aerial contractors today. One said that as our bungalow is on the south side of the hill and has a clear line of sight towards the Beacon Hill transmitter we should have no problems at all in getting BBC 4 and BBC News HD when the service begins shortly, but the transmitter we now use is not being upgraded for these new HD services, hence the need to change. The other said he wouldn't recommend it. He said that a different television transmitter not very far away at Budleigh Salterton uses the same frequencies as Beacon Hill and is as strong as Beacon Hill in our elevated region, that he feels could possibly cause problems with interference and in addition as we have a mobile phone mast close by to our home that will soon carry some 4G signals used by mobile phones, we will need to have a special filter fitted along the cable to get the BBC channels. He said he recommends we get Free sat HD that would cost us more money to install and also will require a dish but we then we will get lots of HD channels. A very different set of opinions - what do the people here think here? Thank you, I am a novice. Grace

Grace: Hello from Gloucestershire. I had Freeview and I live 800 feet above sea level.
The signal from the Oxford transmitter was appalling. Whenever the sun shines the
pictures disappear so I changed to FREESAT. Yes you need a dish and a freesat box.
The dish will cost about £150 and the box is £50 BUT the reception is brilliant on all channels (including radio). When the new BBC HD channels started they all appeared automatically on FREESAT, no retuning needed either.

I would recommend you seriously consider Freesat.
