Freeview reception at AB23 8SY

Terrain between AB238SY 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?

John Martin: jb38: Sorry for not replying sooner, but I just didn't think to read the website until now.

Anyway continuing the conversation: The engineer came on the Monday and he managed to sort out the television reception. Both our two television are connected to one aerial and it has a signal splitter on the aerial, unfortunately this was on it's last legs and would have died if we left it much longer, meaning no television at all. Anyway one new signal splitter and a retune later and problem sorted. Everything's back to normal now.

John Martin: Perfectly understandable! but many thanks for the update on the outcome of the engineers visit, insomuch that the problem was tracked down as being caused by a defective aerial splitter, site visits armed with the necessary equipment always being a far quicker way of determining the cause of a problem, no matter of what nature it might be!

whatever I do, I always seem mohave my channels start at 800 on a Samsung smart TV.

Any suggestions? Tried the factory reset but it still goes back...

Richard Chambers: The Samsung has a decent tuner, and what the 800 numbers are 'extra' channels picked up by the TV - so if you have BBC1, then 805 might be BBC1 as well, but for a different transmitter.

This can be a pain - I've got four BBC1's on my Sony recorder (the tuner is really sensitive), pulled in from my main transmitter, plus 3 others. Unfortunately, the other three are just powerful enough to confuse the recorder, but not enough signal to actually record anything.

In your case, I'd start by checking your tuned to Redruth, because that should be the BBC1 on channel 1 transmitter. If not , start with this page http://www.ukfree.tv/helpme.php?faqid=1107051175 , and hopefully someone more expert than me will be able to answer your question!
