My caravan is at LA3 2XA Heysham but I keep losing reception on ITV4. The aerial is pointed at Winter Hill but a local Transmitter at Lancaster is nearer. Would this be a better option

P Davies: Confirm that your TV is tuned to Winter Hill for ITV4 by bringing up the signal strength screen. It should say UHF channel 55.

C48 is that of Moel-y-Parc and C22 is that of Lancaster.

You can, of course, try Lancaster. The issue (if it turns out that you are indeed tuned correctly to Winter Hill) is probably that you are low down. The signal path (the 'line' between you and the transmitter) is low to the ground for just over a mile which means that there may well be lots of clutter in the way.

For Lancaster you will need to set your aerial for vertical polarisation. Also, if you have a yagi wideband then these are less effective on lower channels, of which Lancaster uses exclusively. Also, the transmission power of Lancaster's COM channels (which carry ITV4 and others) are half power to its PSBs. Winter Hill is much more powerful than Lancaster.

To ask a sensible question, I am 1 mile north of Derby (De1) and my aerial is pointed to west midlands. Would east be better? Thank you.

Ash: I've provided you with a reply to your earlier posting:

The answer is not a simple yes/no one. It may be more a case of try it and see. It is certainly the case that you don't have line-of-sight to either transmitter so neither may be excellent. Sutton Coldfield is slightly closer and more powerful.

I suggest that what you do will depend of whether it is just PSB channels you are having difficulty with or just COM channels.

If it is PSBs then you can try tuning to the Derby relay for which you probably won't need to adjust your aerial. If it is the COMs then you will require a wideband aerial for Waltham as COM4 is on a Group A channel (bottom third of the band) and COM5 and COM6 are on C/D channels (top third of the band).

Hi Tech people - I am in King's Lynn, Norfolk and have noticed that I have lost ITV4, Film4, etc. I get signal from Belmont. Looking at this site I see these are on C60. Trying a manual scan shows "no signal" on C60. Is it possible this is caused by 4G going live??

Any ideas??
Thanks, Nobby

Nobby: Have you replaced your aerial with a wideband one?

Also, do you have a second aerial pointing to the King's Lynn transmitter at Sandringham?

Dave Lindsay: Hello, I?EUR(TM)m in Cardiff, Wales and, like the poster above, have lost ITV4 and Film4 on Freeview. The picture recently started to break up on these channels and as of yesterday, has completely disappeared with ?EURoeno signal?EUR? appearing on screen. We have a loft aerial (I?EUR(TM)m not sure what type it is), but I?EUR(TM)m not sure where we get our signal from. I?EUR(TM)d be very grateful for any suggestions you could offer as to what the problem might be ?EUR" many thanks in advance!

Thanks,

Duncan

Duncan: Maybe you are receiving from the Wenvoe transmitter, near to Culverhouse Cross.

A wideband aerial isn't necessary for Wenvoe so that point probably isn't relevant.

See whether there are any trees that your aerial may be sitting in the shadow of. The leaves growing may make reception worse because there will be less signal getting through.

Hi Dave - I used to get ITV4 but now I don't for some reason. There are two masts. One has two aerials - the first points more-or-less North and the second North-East (this is prob pointing at Sandringham [King's Lynn])

The second mast was put in before the switch-over and points North again (prob at Belmont).

When my box scans it finds five freq. 22 25 30 40 46 but not 53 or 60 from Belmont...??

Thanks, Nobby
