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?

Lizzy: Unfortunately that would appear to be the case, as a quick tour around the rooftops in and around your area reveals a series of "vertically" mounted aerials facing the Skipton Town Freeview - light - PSB only transmitter, although in some cases further away from your particular location pointing towards Skipton or Sutton In Craven Freeview - light transmitters.

The reason for highlighting "vertical" being, that most aerials used for reception from full service transmitters such as Winter Hill as was previously used when you resided in Grassington (but not now receivable) use horizontally mounted aerials, none of seen on any rooftops anywhere near to your location.

Lizzy: I doubt you'll be able to receive the Commercial (COM) Freeview channels at your location. Due to the terrain in the area there a number of relay transmitters that don't carry the COM channels.

Judging by Google Streetview photos you are likely to be using Skipton or Skipton Town transmitter. Due to the fact that you are very low-lying you aren't able to receive the full service directly from Emley Moor.

I can now report receiving some brief and garbled flashes of a few HD channels, and so the problem seems to be a sudden and catastrophic drop in signal quality from the Crystal Palace transmitter.

Chris Rankin: ' the problem seems to be a sudden and catastrophic drop in signal quality from the Crystal Palace transmitter.' - according to R & T Investigation, there are no problems.

I've started receiving the HD channels from BBCB again, but I'm still not receiving any of the HD channels from COM such as BBC 4 HD and BBC News HD.

Has anyone else spotted problems with information from Digital UK? I live in North London, N6 5SQ and like most of my neighbours use Alexandra Palace for free view. Yet DUK state AP offers a poor signal and the best transmitter for my area is Crystal Palace, but this transmitter has always been marred by problems with ghosting and reflections.
Second point, I have a free sat box for the extra channels AP doesn't provide. Disappointed that the new London live channel isn't on AP or free sat.
Does anyone know if it is included in the free sat from sky package? I don't want to pay for TV but know that Sky and Virgin offer London live for a charge for viewers not able to use Crystal Palace.
