All i can say,for good reception of broadcasting,the aerials and cable will need replacing from time to time,in
coastal regions perhaps more than inland,however, a lot of installations never get attention until the day when they fall off the roof.There are still Band 3 aerials on rooftops around the country,given a good clean,and new cable etc,they would be good in fringe locations for DAB,me, i prefer FM,really,but find lot of car radios have poor circuitry and go off tune when the signal weakens.

nicholas: You keep mentioning band 3 aerials, but why should anyone climb on to a roof to retrieve an old one when there are plenty of new ones available (both directional and omnidirectional) which are suitable for loft or rooftop installation?

StevensOnln1: I see your point but lot of the new aerials fall short in shallow or deep fringe areas,the pick
up of the double 6 was awesome.Still,its a shame to see these go to waste and you have an aerial for
pennies.I will be sad if the BBC was forced to leave FM,best quality,no drop outs,no stalling,stil everbody
has their opinion.

In our area we cant get materialist... But to get all the 'free channels' with sky you have to pay (thinking Dave). Think its a bit of a micky take. And the BBC need stringing up for taking away BBC 3.

Mark Excell: Dave is a subscription cannel on satellite, it's only a free channel on Freeview. If you just want the free channels on satellite you don't need a Sky subscription when Freesat is available at a one off cost for the box and installation of the dish and cabling (although if the property has previously had Sky you can just reuse the dish and cabling to connect a Freesat box as both services receive the free channels from the same group of satellites).

Helen Mousley:

True Christmas is not broadcast from every transmitter. It is usually only available on a 'local' service which is on selected transmitters only. If you enter a full post code into this site it will be possible to determine which is your local transmitter and whether it does transmit True Christmas.
