Hi gill2

Are we to take it that the TV reception itself is fine; just the noise is annoying? If not, ignore this and follow MikeP's wise advice.

But if so you may be able to work out the cause of the problem and mend it

Clearly your fat roof should go on a diet?

But if it is also a flat roof does that mean you have easy and safe access to it?

Just work out which bit is loose and screw, glue or tie it so it is not.

I just noticed MikeP's comment (12 June) about the strength of the Crystal Palace Transmitter.

I used to own a house on Herne Hill - a couple of miles north and facing CP.

When I let it out a tenant asked where the TV aerial sockets were. This confused me as I did not know. On reflection, we did not have an aerial at all. Not even indoors. TVs just WORKED.

Post digital TV was more demanding. A screwdriver in the aerial socket was needed.

I'm confused by the reference to no COM8 from The Wrekin. I always thought it was a major "full service" tx. Does that mean that in LL14 5HD there are things I cannot get?

MikeP's advice is the best, but if an external aerial is a problem there are a couple of things you could try which might tip the balance.

One is to get your indoor aerial facing the Wrekin through a window - higher the better.

The other is an aerial amplifier. Not generally recommended with digital TV but might just tip the balance.

Hi Old lady friend living LL11 2LY having trouble with FM Reception of BBC Radio Wales. Is there anything that will show best frequencies there? AM perhaps instead?

Thanks
