We are currently having problems receiving a few channels, and from having a read of this site it seems they are all on Multiplex 2 (ITV etc). We use the Pontop Pike transmitter and apparently have good coverage, however it looks like a tree could be blocking a direct route to the transmitter (hard to tell, it's 19 miles south-east of us). We just bought a new aerial for one of the TVs and it has made no difference. Does anyone have any possible suggestions? Could be ask the council to do something about the tree?

jb38: Thanks for the response. The tree is no more than 20m from the house.

I'm afraid I'm not sure what the aerial gain is, and my dad in his wisdom has already disposed of the box! I do know it is wideband, and received UHF channels 21-68 (or something like that).

I actually used long/lat to determine my position, but my post code is NE22 6HH if this will help.

Thanks. (55.1360,-1.6024)
