I'm fed up with the continuous intermittent ignition interference. Also "Yesterday" [MUX D] just losing signal, 70 to 0 arbitary units on my tv's signal strength indicator at weekends. Freeviews's a marvellous radar system I can detect mopeds at about 1/2 mile. A 20% increase in transmitter power is only a 0.8dB gain, not much! And I've been been told when this occurs my mopeds will then putt putt into insignificance. I'm not bothering anymore. Use the web and watch iplayer etc. Saves the licence fee if you don't watch live broadcasts.

kev: Your location isn't good being down the hill from the old flour mill. That's a big chunk of metal. Try pointing the aerial at the Ramsgate transmitter [51°20'6"N 1°25'21"E]after 27 June. Its at the top of the flats off the Plains of Waterloo, transmitting analogue at the mo. Ideally the aerial should be group A. Have you got the TV link kit for the Sky box? When the switchover comes the end of June the Dover signal strength will go up so you may not need all those boosters. Your setup seems rather complex and a diagram would help.
