This map found via the Twitter feed has the High Speed 2 line!

Timothy Bennet,
When you bought the new TV (then brought it home) what aerial have you connected it to?
The Kings Hedges mast was never a UHF transmitter but was a receiving station for the old British Relay cable system. It closed down in 1986! If you have your own aerial then it may need a new one because Sandy Heath now requires a W wideband aerial whereas it was an A group.
If you are in a block with a communal aerial contact your landlord. If it's your property and it has an old aerial, and you aren't confident sorting it out yourself, then call a local CAI installer.
The signal to the north side of Cambridge is strong!

Postcode CV21 is definitely outside the Sandy Heath coverage. Doesn't mean you won't be able to receive it if you're on a high spot but Sutton Coldfield should be better for you.

Duncan: There are some patches in CV21 also not covered by Sutton Coldfield that are covered by Waltham. Go here: Full service Freeview transmitters and click on the transmitter and have a closer look where you live or reply with a postcode. Also which way are your nearest neighbours aerials pointing?

I don't think it is broadcast from Sandy Heath but from the mast at Madingley which used to provide a C5 analogue service to Cambridge before analogue closure. The mast does currently provide other radio services. The Cambridge TV service area can be seen here: About | Cambridge TV
Click on "Tuning In" to see the predicted service area.
