Freeview reception - all about aerials | Installing
Sunday 6 November 2011 2:22PM

I have a very old wideband, high gain TV aerial I bought many years ago to try my hand at TV DX'ing. On a good day I could just about make TV South West. Happy days!
I am starting to think it is past its best as I don't get very many Freeview channels from the Crystal Palace, Sudbury or Bluebell Hill transmitters. Access to the aerial is easy via a flat roof so I have been able to turn it round to point in any direction.
Two questions.
1. Should I be getting better signals than I am from this location SS7 3PW about 100m asl?
2. Will a standard (non-wideband, non-high gain) aerial still work with Freeview from Crystal Palace after DSO?
