Mulley: No because the signal from Mendip on this channel is directional and in the direction of Bristol.

What a triumph - and pure joy - having the talent and enterprise to bring back professional broadcasting in place of the dire offerings from regional tv stations all over the country (with rare exception ).

all best wishes - you deserve to succeed.

Hi there,
I was really enjoying Made in Bristol TV at my house in Failand, Bristol and now I have moved to Shirehampton in Bristol and I cannot receive the channel as before, it is nowhere to be found. I only have freeview. By all accounts it's the same transmitter here.
Can you help me in any way as I really miss this channel
many thanks

The transmitter aerial used for Made in Bristol does not cover Shirehampton. The pattern or signals produced by the aerial was specifically designed to cover only certain areas of Bristol.

Jol: Shirehampton covers a rather large area, and although that said by MikeP with regards to the radiation pattern of the aerial is quite correct it all depends on your location within said area, as Shirehampton is on the outer edge of the left hand lobe of Mendips LBS transmitter, likewise a similar situation applying to reception from Bristol Kings Weston's LBS transmitter.

Knowledge your location is essential in situations such as yours, (i.e: a post code or that of a nearby shop incl post office being suffice) as a test code from the Shirehampton area of BS11 9SJ (Pembroke Ave) indicated reception of Made in Bristol as being possible from both Mendip or the more local (1mile) Bristol Kings Weston transmitter, a subsequent Google earth (rooftop) check revealing a mix of aerials facing towards either of the two.

Jol: In addition to that said with regards to aerial direction, have a look up at your aerial and check the polarity its mounted on, if its vertically mounted (elements facing up/down) then its facing towards Kings Weston, as Mendip uses horizontal polarity (elements flat).

You should also try carrying out a manual tune signal test on the Mux channel used by Made in Bristol, this being Mux51 in the case of Mendip, whereas Kings Weston uses Mux30.

The procedure being, go into your TV (or boxes) tuning menu and select "manual" tune followed by entering one of the aforementioned Mux numbers into the box then pausing at this point, do *not" press search or scan, because any traces of a signal is being received (nomatter how low) the level and quality of will appear in the strength / quality bars.

Needless to say, if anything around 50% or so is being indicated, press search or scan to store same.

Hi, I live on the Bristol-Gloucester border and struggle to get the signal to watch on my tv. I was involved in the TTTW charity event at Clevedon beach being a regular swimmer there and would love to see the footage on the site. Please can you tell me how I can watch it via the web?
