Freeview reception at AB51 5QX

Terrain between AB515QX 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?

Dave Lindsay,

Update:

I think I've sorted it.
I've fashioned a compass out of a cup of water, a small piece of paper and a pin, and checked the aerial alignment.
It was out by about 10-12 degrees, so I've re-aligned and now all the channels have come back and (so far) are behaving well.

I still don't know why the problem started though - as I said, I've had exactly the same set-up for 7 years...

Anyway, thanks for your help.

Lee
