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?

Zone 2 44cm minidishes are far better than 38cm Zone 1 minidishes in that they have a much bigger received dBW gain and have much better signal reception in bad weather over smaller Zone 1 38cm minidishes.

I live in Auchtermuchty post code KY14 7BE. I am experiencing poor reception on BBC1 and BBC2. Channel 3 ,4 , and 5 are good.

There appears to be intermittent problems with the relay transmitter in Strathmiglo.

This state of poor intermittent reception is totally unsatisfactory.

Yours faithfully

Mr R J Smeaton

We seem to have lost all BBC national service - no dab signal, no free view BBC channels. Based on the outskirts of Preston and happened at about 8am 30th July 2014.

Further to my E mail of the 29 July, I unplugged the aerial and performed a scan.
I re - connected the aerial and ran another scan. The re-scan did not find BBC1 or BBC2 !!! Re-ran the scan again and it found BBC1 and BBC2.
The picture is still breaking up on BBC1 & BBC2. Several of my neigbours are experiecing the same problem.
We all pay the same full licence fee. We should all be receiving a satisfatcory picture and sound quality on these two channels.
Please be kind enough to respond to this and my previous E mail
Yours in hope that you can fix this problem.
