Winter Hill (Bolton, England) transmitter

Just realised that I'm probably getting a weak signal from Moel y Parc.
So, what has happened to UHF channel 55 on Winter Hill?

Just done a full autoscan of Panasonic TV and Humax and C55 has reappeared! Which begs the question "why did it disappear yesterday", and why didn't a manual scan of C55 work?

Welsh transmiter frequencies have just been changed. Please can we have an update of the charts.

Thanks for the link Mike P, but I'd still like to see the new frequencies reflected in the above tables.

I'm currently on Barra in the OuterHebrides and can receive BBC DAB stations. According to UK FreeTV the nearest DAB transmitters are near Inverness or Glasgow. Is that really the case ?

Many thanks Steve. We're now on North Uist and reception still good. Do you know of an up-to-date listing for DAB transmitters?

Hi Chris, I note your comments above regarding log periodic aerials. I live in north Wales 39 miles from Winter Hill. I use a log periodic aerial which points midway between Winter Hill and Storeton and am able to pick up all English and Welsh multiplexes at full signal strength, including the low power C21 Liverpool signal and Com78 on C55, both from Winter Hill. The log periodic aerial is much smaller that the old Yagi I used to use but seems to be just as effective.

Chris, My postcode is CH7 3EB. My height ASL is 427 ft and I live in a bungalow with the aerial chimney mounted ca. 20 ft AGL. From the roof I have direct line of sight of Winter Hill on a clear day, which probably accounts for the fact that I get superb reception. The reason I had a new aerial installed last year was that the old installation as showing serious signs of corrosion, bits having dropped off, including the reflectors, which didn't seem to affect reception. I do not recollect commenting about loss of reception - it must have been some time ago.
