Another update - a combined list of TV, radio and DAB transmitt
published on UK Free TV

As there are now pages for all of the TV, radio and DAB transmitters, including various forms of mapping, I have now provided an extra page that has a comprehensive list of ALL of these transmitters listed together.

The list looks like this example. Masts with engineering work are listed in red, and there is a "dab", "radio" and "tv" link for each service as appropriate.

Hi Bob - if you are near the coast - or facing it with no mountains in the way - you may be able to get Welsh Freeview TV from Meol-y-parc if you point an aerial at it.

With Freesat you can have any local signal you please

And on the interweb you can get Welsgh stuff.

Your site is very informative and useful, but I have to observe that the font size is often too small to read with ease. Is there any reason for this please?

Just an idear (that means more work for you)
It would be good if the list of TV and radio transmitters had links to the transmitter page.

I have a Humax PVR 9200T and live Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire.

Recently I re-scanned all my channels which has resulted in the BBC channels being unwatchable due to picture/sound break up (the box re-scanned this multiplex of Channels to "Channel 27" and says Cambs & Bed as the TV transmitter). All the other channels are completely unaffected and interestingly all say "London" as the TV transmitter location.
Why is it sourcing 2 different TV transmitters especially since one of them has a rubbish signal?

Is there a way to point or manually tune these BBC channels towards the London transmitter. I had a look at the manual tuning dialogue page but it was not very intuactive and I was unable to solve the problem.

Many thanks in advance.

dan - I think your problem is that Sandy Heath tx has increased power but whichever you normally use has not.

You should be able to find your desired BBC channels somewhere in the 800 numbers then swap round to 101, 102, etc.

Or keep rescanning at different times until you get what you want!

This is what I do to get round the same problem...

On your Humax choose Menu - Edit Channels and then Edit Channels List. Enter password **** usually 0000. Right arrow to group either TV then select all and then delete.

Right on Group button allows TV/Radio channel selection I delete both in turn because occassionally I record a radio station.

Pressing left repeatedly gets back to the main menu and save option to delete channels.

Now all you have to do is install the channels manually using

Installation - Manual Search and enter the channel numbers obtainable from this website.
You can can check you have the correct channels when on the Manual Search page using the Strength and Quality signal bars.

Retune each channel for your area saving all each time.

Good Luck John..

Mark A.: I'm not sure what you mean, on the All UK TV, DAB and radio transmitters | - independent free digital TV advice the "tv" "radio" and "dab" are links to the appropriate page.

dan preston: It is likely that the 9200T stores the first version found rather than the best quality, although you'd have to ask why it wouldn't pick all services from Sandy Heath.

Your best bet is the Hemel Hempstead transmitter, which requires a vertically-polarized aerial pointing east-south-east. You might alternatively be aiming at the Crystal Palace transmitter, which is horizontally polarized, and due south-east.

If the box was just storing the channels based on the first found, you would expect it to store Crystal Palace C25 C22 C28 C32 C34 C29 (1-2-A-B-C-D) in preference to Sandy Heath C27 C24 (C21) C43 C40 C67 (C21 carries HD signals which the PVR9200T won't tune in). Hemel Hempstead is up at C48 C55 C59 C60 C62 C65.

Check which way your aerial's elements are running - up-and-down or side-to-side - and if up-and-down, try tuning into the Hemel Hempstead frequencies, otherwise, try Crystal Palace. However, the predicted reliability from Crystal Palace is variable, up until switchover.

If you are using Hemel Hempstead, be aware that you will need to retune on the 16th of September, as Mux 1 and A move to temporary frequencies to allow Oxford and Sandy Heath to use their current frequencies.
