Freeview reception at EN4 9HU


For reliable and stable Freeview reception, you need an unobstructed path between the TV aerial on your roof and the digital TV transmitter. The map below shows the transmitters predicted to provide a signal at this location.

You can click on any transmitter symbol to show the coverage area as a green overlay on the map. Double click on a transmitter symbol to go to the transmitter information page.

You can also view the ten closest potential '4G-at-800' mobile phone masts within 1.5km of the selected location - these masts may be used for 4G-at-800 mobile broadband services from 2013-2015.

Heather Ellis:

Set top aerials are never very good even in the best locations.

You will probably need a good external aerial installed.

Heather Ellis:
Unfortuneatly I rent the flat which has various landlords.My landlord will not provide an external aerial,hence my only option was a set top aerial.I have looked at one with a 43db gain,do you think that might help?

Heather Ellis: Firstly, she is only 5.6 miles from the transmitter so generally speaking (all we can ever be is general) is that the chances of a set-top aerial working are much greater than those who are further away.

By "general" I am talking across the area as a whole there are always likely to be pockets of poor reception owing to buildings, trees etc.

The "43dB" quoted figure may be the sum of the aerial's gain plus that of the amplifier the most likely for it is so as to sell the device because a bigger number sounds better.

The most important thing is having the clearest view of the transmitter as possible. Think of it like light and objects in the way as casting a shadow.

Therefore, being on the side of the building which faces the transmitter is likely to be better than that facing away. If it's the latter then the signal coming directly to the receiving aerial is likely to be degraded and there is likely to be more reliance on reflections for reception.

At such close proximity the amplification your daughter has could potentially be making the signal too big, i.e. it's OTT. As such, I suggest that the level be reduced and try again.

With manual tuning if you enter/select the UHF channel number/frequency but don't press the button to scan/add services, instead wait and the device will probably act as a signal meter (it takes several seconds for the reading to catch up). I suggest that this be used to see whether the aerial can be sited somewhere that C44 can be received, this in combination with an assessment of where it is thought the signal might be best on view of obstructions.

Brian, Sorry I should have used the PSB 3 BBC B mux as a comparison. This is 100Kw DVB-T2 and carries BBC 1 HD. COM 7 is 5.8Kw DVB-T2 and carries BBC 4 HD and is 12DB down, 1/16 of the power of PSB 3. My Humax HDR FOX T2 receives (via a wideband aerial) BBC 1 HD on ch 57 at 80% signal and 100% quality. BBC4 HD is on ch 31 and the Hummy reports 0% signal and quality. This is not what I would expect to get after viewing the COM 7 coverage map!

Hello,
I'm located at DE11 7QU and tuned to the Waltham transmitter. All other HD and SD channels are being receved ok. But Bonanzabonanza and Local TV test both brak up some days and nothing is being receved from the new HD chanlles C31 and C37.
Are the new HD channels working or ham I out of range?

Paul

Paul Fletcher: As far as Waltham goes, you are just the wrong side of a drop which prevents line-of-sight at 30.7 miles:


Terrain between ( m a.g.l.) and (antenna m a.g.l.) - Optimising UK DTT Freeview and Radio aerial location


According to Digital UK, C31 doesn't come on air from Waltham until 25th of this month. It is to be only 8.7kW though.

The local mux is directional and not intended for you. Therefore there is probably nothing you can do.

Sutton Coldfield's new HD channel is on air now on C33 which you might get to some degree, as you appear to have a fairly good path.

If you're using manual tuning and there is an option for DVB-T or DVB-T2 then select the latter for HD channels or it won't find it.

mr p clark: It presently does on Mux Ch39 and has been doing for some considerable time.

Although indications are that the signal path from the Chatton transmitter (@ 3.3 miles) is completely obstructed at approximately 1.75miles prior to your location "if" you receive the other channels OK then are you sure that your TV is capable of HD reception and as such is fitted with a DVB-T2 tuner and not just DVB-T?, if you have the user manual for the TV check the specifications section or come back with the model number of the set and this can be checked out for you.

Should though you do have a TV capable of HD reception and you receive the other channels are OK even although the signal is obstructed, then another thing that can block HD reception is if the signal being received is too strong, and at only 3.3 miles away from the transmitter this is a distinct possibility, and so if you are using any form of booster try by passing it by connecting the aerial directly into the TV followed by carrying out a retune on the set if nothing appears on EPG2.

Further advice dependant on feedback.
