Mr A Sherreard

In Colchester you'll be using Sudbury - not Tacolneston.

Why is Whitehawk Hill vertically polarised and Heathfiled horizontally polarised - they are both main transmitters?

I know that in theory receivers and transmitters should match in term of polarisation, but, practically, does it make a lot of difference regarding reception?

For people who use a sub-transmitter for geographical reasons, is it possible to increase the gain at the rear to take advantage of some of the programs offered by a main transmitter (other than rotating the aerial). I tried removing the reflectors from a Yagi style aerial, but it made no difference to any receptions.

Does the reflector reflect signals from the forward tansmitter to the dipole, or is it designed to reflect relections from the rear away from the dipole?

If a director was placed between the dipole and the reflector would that enahance reception from the rear of the aerial?

Is there a more powerful signal emitted from Whitehawk Hill after 9PM?
