I live in St Ives, Cornwall and receive my signal from Caradon Hill transmitter. Myself and others in this area have hardly had any channels for the last 3 days, it is worse in the evening. It says that there is no fault with the transmitter. Please help/advise.

Pete Green: At one point, there was an option to see traces to other transmitters, but I removed it because it simply caused confusion.

If you would find it useful it could be a possible "advanced option".

emma: If you reside in a block of flats then the obvious question would be if you as yet have checked with any of your neighbours to find out if they are also experiencing problems, because no faults are seen listed on the transmitter engineering page.

Still having problems in BS35 2YH with signal mostly lost but have it for either half an hour or an hour a day, starting and finishing on the half hours. Any advice?

Would it be possible to receive signals from a horizontal main transmitter even if you are located in a vertical area using a Wideband aerial with suitable range? I mean, are there certain areas where pointing at a vertical transmitter is the only option? In Nottingham we have the Nottingham transmitter which is vertical and Waltham which is horizontal but because Waltham is so powerful I don't understand why the Nottingham transmitter is required. How much of the country now relies on these vertical transmitters?

Steveeboy: The reason why Nottingham is required is probably because there are areas where Waltham isn't. This is likely to be due to the terrain, which blocks reception from Waltham.

As with any transmitter, there are places of overlap. Study the coverage maps on this site for the two transmitters. You will probably find that the gaps correspond to drops in the terrain.

The main, high power transmitters are horizontally polarised, except for Rowridge which, since switchover, uses mixed polarisation. The majority of relays are vertically polarised.

Briantist. I would find it handy but I'm the odd one out.

Thanks Dave. So, my next question is regarding the need to have an aerial which can be positioned horizontally and vertically for instance when touring in a caravan? Most seem to only have the aerial set to horizontal in all sorts of different locations.
