Rowridge (Isle Of Wight, England) transmitter
Tuesday 28 March 2017 10:51AM

OK I have thatched property so each time I have the thatcher in I have a new aerial. 38km from Rowridge 160 degrees

The new aerial is VP old HP I have lost signals cannot easily receive e.g.Vintage TV.

From your correspondence it would seem I need to go back to HP

What do you think

I'm on Rowridge and am receiving conflicting information. The aerial installer is saying VP is by far the best giving the strongest signal I am 38 km from the transmitter it radiates both HP and VP. UK digital say you should use HP to get all the channels then why should whoever invest in a new transmitter radiating VP. Your columnists suggest the VP has been powered down from 200,000 kw to 50,000 kw All I know is my picture and reception of certain stations is poor HD is difficult at best. I expect to have problems in the summer with leaves on the trees but no leaves at the moment. Oh for VHF
Thanks for any help VP or HP
