My Freeview reception has deteriorated over last few months in Multiplexes A, C and D and I now can't get Yesterday or ITV3 which I like. In CB22 7RS I am 20 km from Sandy Heath transmitter but behind a church tower and large ash trees. Aerial is a YAGI mounted in the roof space of my bungalow (restrictive covenant). I have a 9db signal booster mounted about 20' from the aerial. Signal strengths on the UHF channels are: CH24 60-80%, CH27 80-90%, CH40 50-60%, CH43 50-60%, CH67 30-60% very variable. Is it worth investing in a high gain aerial or can you suggest other solution?

Thanks to KJM for his advice to my question on 5th June. I moved the tip of the aerial about six inches and now have excellent reception on the channels that I want.
