Crystal Palace (Greater London, England) Full Freeview transmit
Thursday 11 August 2016 10:23PM
St. Albans

Andrew: AL3 5PP loft Televes DAT45 with powered masthead 5050 MRD gets good signal strength and quality from Crystal Palace for HD channels 101, 102, 103, etc, but not al Jazeera HD channel 108 (COM7). What aerial(s) could get COM7 and COM8 multiplexes for me? Thanks for any advice.

Just a few years ago a respected aerials website suggested that Crystal Palace needed a 'Band A' aerial for optimum Freeview reception. However I can find no current reference to such advice; instead, only that a 'Wideband' aerial is now recommended. So when did the change actually occur and why? In a rather fringe area I had installed a 'Band A' aerial which, with a masthead aerial, still "sort-of" works. Anyone out there know about this, please?
