Your suggestions (and my corrections) for 2014 please
Firstly, here is a list of some of the "backend" changes I have made to UK Free TV.
Special transmitter detailsCaldbeck (Cumbria, England) transmitter now shows the ITV Border England and ITV Border Scotland services.
Ridge Hill (County of Herefordshire, England) transmitter: I have merged together two entries for Ridge Hill (a legacy of the analogue ITV-1 service, back in 2006 - ITV West extended to North Gloucestershire) and the ITV West service is now shown on the same page as all the rest.
Rowridge (Isle Of Wight, England) transmitter : Thanks to serling work from Sean we now have notification from Arqiva about the correct transmission details for com7 and com8 from that mast.
Transmitter Meta TagsIf you search on Google and get information up about transmitters from UK Free TV, the "meta" information now shows the correct number of multiplexes and all of their channels and powers.
Interfaces with Twitter and FacebookI have obtained better icons for the sites listed in the Zeitgeist section. So, if you look at a "Read This" page, you see a better look, for example Read this: London Live reveals its bright lights for the big city - Media - theguardian.com now looks like
When such a page is posted on Facebook, it now keeps the correct large icon:
And pages posted on Twitter now get the full format for the extended tweet:

Over to youOne in 20 people from the UK visited UK free TV last year. I would love to be able to extend the site to make it useful to more people.
I would love you to tell me how the site could be made even better so we can help even more people enjoy Freeview, Freesat, Sky (No Card) and online TV viewing.
Help with Freeview, aerials?

Charles Stuart: Click on "Digital UK tradeview" seen in the selection box at the right hand side of your posting and you will see that 195° is indicated as the bearing for Mendip using your post code and with 196° being indicated on Wolfbanes site, this being seen by opening the undermentioned link.
The other point being, as mentioned by Dave Lindsay its not really that critical, however this mostly applies to reasonably near to line-of-sight situations no mater what distance might be involved but though it can become more critical in difficult reception areas, although the final trimming up is done with reference to a proper signal meter and not a compass bearing.

On the TV Transmitter regions - overview map page the SKRIAIG Region Transmitter is shown on the wrong Scottish Island.
SKRIAIG is on the Isle of Skye which of course is very close to the mainland and not on the Island of North Uist in the Outer Hebrides which is some distance from the mainland.
Also when I enter my postcode to find my Freeview transmitter I am shown the wrong relay station Fodderty which in no way covers Conon Bridge where I stay at IV7 8HE.
All TV coverage in Conon Bridge comes from Auchmore Wood which is clearly visible from all rooftops!
I hope this information helps you to improve this excellent web-site.

I have been a member of UK tv for a number of years now and have contributed and have also been interested in other contributors comments etc.
I have asked 9in the past ,but have not had a reply, when I get an email from your site obviously something has triggered this. Usually (from other members sites) an email is received when there has been an answer to one of my comments o an original post.
Today I have received an email but due to the change in layout I cannot find any of MY contributions' and there is nowhere that I can setup my preferences.
Your help will be most appreciated.
