I live in Sheet just on the outskirts of Petersfield(GU31 5AB), and our current signal from Midhurst has deteriorated from poor to non existent due to the trees behind our house. My question is, will the boost on the signal strength in March help with this problem or not?
Many thanks

Simon Ash: The signal will be ten times stronger on the PSB muxes after switchover at Midhurst, so it is possible that you might notice an improvement in reception. However if the foliage is dense enough it could still block the signal, or give signal quality problems - what is analogue reception like currently? The Digital UK postcode checker suggests that a new transmitter due to enter service after switchover at Rowridge could offer good reception at your location. This transmitter does not offer the COM muxes until 18th April 2012, so best to try after that date if Midhurst is giving problems. Reception of Rowridge VP will require a group "A" aerial pointing SW with the rods set for vertical polarisation.
