Freeview reception at M26 1EP


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.

Taz Bradley: Zone 2 dishes are always a better bet by them grabbing that little bit more signal from the satellite over that of a Zone1 dish, likewise are less likely to be affected by heavy thundery type rain etc.

If the position the dish is going to be mounted in has a clear view of the S / S.Easterly skyline then there shouldn't be any problems with reception.

A Zone 2 dish will 'collect' roughly twice the amount of signal strength than a Zone 1 because it is larger. The stronger signal means it will be less affected by heavy rain/snow/hail/etc that diminish the amount of signal arriving at the dish. So a Zone 1 could well be borderline in your part of Kernow in a village I know quite well having enjoyed holidays there several times. (Yes, I'm a 'grockle'!)
A Zone 2 dish, being larger, needs to be carefully mounted on good strong support so it doesn't get moved by the winds and storms and be aimed very carefully as it has a narrower reception angle. You may be lucky to live in a part that is more protected by the surrounding hills, so storms will have less windage effect.

Thank you for that - I too was a grockle up until recently and made the move more permanent... Thanks again..

Previous occupants had a satellite dish - with hindsight we could have used that - but had humax free view so just ignored it... Will definitely be changing to freesat..... Thanks again both for the responses..

John Martin: Best policy!, maybe you could post an update with regards to the outcome of the visit, as I will be interested in that said by the engineer.

If though by any chance the reception problem channels referred to have now reverted back to normal? then this is liable to create a problem for the engineer, that is unless he is fully acquaint with the reception situation in your particular area, as if he isn't!, then he will up to a point be working in the dark if said problem channels are indicating well above the lower threshold cut off level.

However, if you look at the blue box on the right hand side of your posting you will see a selection of choices, click on the fifth item down "J's DigitalUK tradeview" this then taking you onto the trade reception predictor that will enable you to view the details of the reception expected from the transmitters that cover your area, namely Waltham and Belmont.

As you will no doubt see Belmont is green all the way, whereas a variable level of reception could be expected from Waltham on SDN (C29) and also similar from COM7 (HD Mux), the low powered (5Kw) L-NOT Mux also being in the category of variable.

By the way, if you hover your mouse pointer over each of the Mux channel numbers (under N) the ERP (power) that the Mux channel is operating on will appear.

Do unused Sky Boxes have a value? I will have two Sky + HD which will have their Sky signals cut next month.... I would like to pass them on to friends for a small charge but know not a lot about the position of the viewing card.. If I leave it in place can a new owner receive some service via the boxes or must they re-subscribe to a pay for view service?

You advice and comments would be appreciated.

Edward Cunningham: Hi. Without a subscription the Sky+HD boxes revert to being non-recording HD boxes.

Given that anyone who doesn't have Sky can take advantage of the "free dish and box offer", there isn't much to be gained for someone unless they have a use for a non-recording but otherwise HD Sky box.

Zone 2 44cm minidishes are far better than 38cm Zone 1 minidishes in that they have a much bigger received dBW gain and have much better signal reception in bad weather over smaller Zone 1 38cm minidishes.

I live in Auchtermuchty post code KY14 7BE. I am experiencing poor reception on BBC1 and BBC2. Channel 3 ,4 , and 5 are good.

There appears to be intermittent problems with the relay transmitter in Strathmiglo.

This state of poor intermittent reception is totally unsatisfactory.

Yours faithfully

Mr R J Smeaton

If you have no satellite signal, see Sky Digibox says 'No Signal' or 'Technical fault'

If you have other problems, please provide a full (not partial) postcode (or preferably enter it in box at the top right) and indicate where if aerial is on the roof, in the loft or elsewhere.
