By providing a full postcode (such as W1A 1AA), national grid reference (for example SE123456) or latitude, longitude pair (like 54, -0.5) this page will provide a map, terrain plot and detailed information of the location showing the UK and RoI television transmitters that it is possible you receive Freeview, Freeview HD, Youview, BT Vision and Saorview from.

(Don't know your postcode? Find it at Post Office Postcode finder).

UK Free TV uniquely shows you transmitter coverage maps, aerial to transmitter terrain plots, the closest 10 mobile phone masts (for possible 4G-at-800 interference) as well as tabulated information (sorted by direction, by received signal strength, by frequency, by service names or by transmitter name).

These predictions are based upon a rooftop aerial and depend on the suitability of the aerial, the distance to the transmitters, the power of their signals, the postcode area, and local terrain.

Rob: Further to that said, the information given was from DUK's trade reception predictor, however a subsequent terrain check carried out using the info provided reveals two separate obstructions to the signal path from Wenvoe with the first being @ 6.5 miles, the second being a somewhat sizable obstruction stretching from approximately 3.5 miles out down to 1.5 miles prior to your area.

Although the latter mentioned does not look to be too promising as far as reliable reception is concerned, there is nothing to stop you trying it, if though it transpires to be a failure, then you have no option other than to use the Mynydd Bach Freeview "Light" transmitter.

Further info available if required.

I'm in TQ7 postal area and I've had no Freeview since 10:30am
I've tried factory re-install on my TV for channel scan.
Unplugged and reconnected still nothing.

sophie harris : Your area is covered by the Kingsbridge relay of the Caradon Hill main transmitter, said relay taking its feed off-air from the main transmitter, the problem with these type of set ups being, that Caradon Hill is listed on the planned engineering page under the heading of "possible weak signal", this being something which can possibly have an affect on transmissions from its relays dependent on how low the signal might be, Kingsbridge obviously being one of its relays.

The action of retuning your TV whilst the signal was down will have deleted everything stored in the tuner, therefore, you have no option other than to carry out further retunes now and again to recover that lost, as the channels will not return of their own accord.

That said, it would of course be beneficial to check with a neighbour to ascertain if they are also experiencing problems with reception, if they aren't, nor even have been, then check for loose aerial connections / jumper leads etc on your system.

12:20 AM Moreton-in-marsh

The nearest and recommended transmitter from Moreton-in-Marsh is Lark Stoke. However, this transmitter does not transmit HD or is limited in choice of Freeview channels so Ariel installers in this area recommend pointing at a transmitter either transmitting direct from Oxford or via a relay. Either way, users have no choice but to watch BBC South or Oxford instead of BBC West Midlands. This is a pain and unless you have a satellite provided service, you are stuck with watching news from the South East region. A lot of elderly people in Moreton who do not have a Satellite dish are affected by this and it is a pain!

Tried Freeview's reduction thing. Came up with Crystal Palace transmitter and I put a Glasgow postcode in as I live in Glasgow.

I live on the south side of Glasgow and because of local geographical features (a steep hill right behind the house and tall trees to the south etc. we cannot receive any signal from Harthill and Darvel - the main transmitters for this area.
I have pointed the aerial directly at the Rosneath transmitter. It is 41km away and without an amplifier there is no useable signal. but with an amp placed in the eaves near where the cable enters the roof we can now receive clear signals of PSB1 (BBCA) Channel 49
PSB2 (D3+4) Channel 58
PAB3 (BBCB) Channel 54
Signal strength ranges between 80% and 90% according to my television and it rates the signal quality at 100% on all 3 channels.

COM4 (SDN) Channel 53
COM5 (ArqA) Channel 57
COM6 (ArqB) Channel 57

Show as zero signal.
I am plugging directly into the TV - an LG 42LM 670T.

Can anyone help me me fix this or at least understand why?

Simon: I don't think you will be able to receive Rosneath COMs at your location because they are co-channel with the Cathcart transmitter which is on the same bearing and is also vertically polarised.

The COMs have inferior coverage, meaning that for transmitters which do carry them there are likely to be places where only PSBs can be received reliably.

Darvel and Black Hill are your only possibilities for picking up the COMs, and if you can't receive from either then it's PSBs only I'm afraid.
