Im an aerial installer and I live 2.4 miles from you if you want me to take a look for you seen as you live so close i can come out and give you a quick idea of the problem

if theres any parts needed then I would charge for those and a bit of my time but if its just a quick look and I can be helpful then buy us a couple of pints !

dear kb my son has just started university at crewe flats post code S10 2LL there is no out door aerial so i am researching a good indoor one but need to know if it will work before forking out £145 for a tv licence. any comments or recomendations will help thankyou lindsey brown

Lindsey Brown: Indoor aerials are usually awful for Freeview reception, you can sometimes put them by a window that has a good view of the transmitter, but otherwise they are usually totally unreliable.

as much as I hate to say it

You are virtually on top of the local transmitter so the chances of an indoor aerial working is quite good

buy one from argos making sure you can return it if it doesn't work
try it and see don't get one with a built in amplifier as it will probably overload and not work

if not give me a call you would be looking at between £100- £120 For me to come out and install an aerial professionally

Would be interested to know if it does work by the way !

(S17 3DP - W band aerial (H) - currently Belmont transmitter - 100% quality)
Is Sheffield transmitter now transmitting all Muxes at full power? I thought ArqB and full power was going to happen on 27th Sept?
The reason I ask is that I am probably going to have my aerial altered so that I am getting my local programmes/news rather than Lincs.
I am sure I'll be able to get a good signal from Sheffield as even though my aerial is pointing the wrong way and wrong polarity I'm getting C24 (Strength 52%; Quality 90%) and C42 (Strength 43%; Quality 40%), but not the other Sheffield channels.

Andy 5 out of 6 muxes are on full power

Im going to make a leaflet up and distribute it offering this services as I think people will genuinely appreciate being able to receive the correct news

Im guessing you previously was in an area not served by crosspool because of Totley Relay

I Would be interested in taking a look at yours if you would like - im based in Beighton -
