As you probably know, your main transmitter is Sandy Heath at compass bearing 31 degrees, aerial rods horizontal.
As StevensOnln1 has said there is no Local multiplex there serving your area. Where the small number of main transmitters have Local multiplexes, they are normally beamed to urban centres as mentioned in my post before yours.

Cambridge is served by a Local multiplex transmitted from the Madingley transmitter on UHF channel C35, although its location is likely to be within the beamwidth of your aerial, the signal is not beamed your way.
You stand very little chance of getting any signal from it but it may be worth trying a MANUAL scan on C35, autoscans are very likely to miss a very weak signal.

Whilst StevensOnln1 has said you may get a weak signal for the Oxford Local multiplex, it is virtually in the opposite direction to where your aerial currently points. Some people do receive signals on rear sidelobes of their aerials, so even though it's a very slim chance, try a MANUAL tune on C46.
Other than that, the Oxford transmitter is at compass bearing 255 degrees (again rods horizontal).

Many thanks.

This channel is carried on Local multiplexes.
See Channel listings for Industry Professionals | Freeview for which channels are on which multiplex.

Not everyone can receive a Local mutliplex, they are limited to a small number of main transmitters and transmission is usually beamed towards the urban centres of population they serve.
If you do not get a Local News station on LCN7 or 8 in your EPG and are missing other channels as per the list, then you aren't receiving a Local multiplex.

If you provide a full postcode, as well as know which transmitter you currently receive, we should be able to advise whether you should get a Local multiplex or whether you might be able to from another transmitter.

Charmian Carter: Try asking the channel, this isn't their website and nobody here has anything to do with running or broadcasting any channel.
