Freeview reception at AB15 9SE

Terrain between AB159SE 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.

What do the map symbols mean?

Any reason why my digital recorder won't record BBC channels? Works with everything else

Hi JB38, finally we have a resolution. Turns out the booster was u.s. and we needed a new power unit on the aerial. All channels are now back on line and we are a few pounds poorer!! Thanks for all your efforts, much appreciated.

CBS Action channel 90 from Winter Hill has appeared on my Technika Freeview HD box yesterday morning and I've done a retune of my Samsung 32" LED Freeview TV to get it too, it's on Winter Hill channel 55. Technika Freeview HD Box Quality 98% Strength 82%, Samsung TV Signal Strength 97%.

CBS Action is just an orange info screen at the moment-does anyone know when it will start?

Hi there. Yesterday, 28th August, Latest TV Brighton was launched here in Brighton but retuning my TV does not give me Channel 8 to receive reception. Can you tell me why? My post code is BN2 5WJ here in Brighton Marina. Thanks

Fran Shuttlewood : Good news then! that of course being apart from the financial cost of replacing the defective booster / power supply / plus labour for fitting same etc.

I do feel though, that the main aspect of your problem responsible for misleading symptoms was due to the strong signal from the local Woodford Halse relay transmitter being received by breaking through the defective booster, whereas anything of a lower level such as from Oxford, not doing.

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to give an update on the situation, and pleased that everything is now back to normal.
