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).

I have an aerial on the top of a tall pole on the roof of the 3 storey house where I live (so pretty high), and last night (Thursday 30th April) just before 10pm I lost freeview reception completely, getting a 'no reception' message. I switched to freesat where reception was fine. I checked 30 minutes later and still no reception on freeview. This morning I have freeview reception again. Any ideas?

David: This sounds like failure of a signal amplifier or its power supply. Don't assume that just because the light is on that it's functioning normally -- all it's telling you is that there is power there.

Dave Lindsay: Thanks for the reply Dave, but I don't think that's it as freeview reception was perfect this morning without me taking any action.

David: If your getting 'no signal', then your either getting nothing or a signal so low that the tuner isn't bothering with it.

You may not feel David's excellent advice is applicable, so here is another one. Your aerial is attached to your TV by a thin (6mm?) cable which is exposed to all weathers, and is constantly under pressure from the wind, rain, etc. Eventually, somethings got to give, and perhaps a small break or crack in the waterproofing on a connection appears. Thats OK when its dry, but during the night moisture condenses and gets into that small crack, and kills the signal. In the morning, the moisture dries out and you've got your signal back again.

Check the signal strength - if its really low, then the aerial system is marginal (but perfectly fine) until some thing happens. Your just 11km from Crystal Palace (assuming thats the transmitter your using), so you should be getting a stonkingly strong signal.

I have recently moved into a house and had a digital coaxial cable installed in every room.
We have sky in two rooms and just freeview tv's in two other rooms.
the reception on the freeview tv's are breaking up on regular occasions and i wonder if it is the digital coaxial cable and should i change it to standard coaxial?
Many thanks.

Steve: I'm not sure what 'digital coax' even is - its all the same stuff, although sat. standard stuff is going to be WT100, etc - just better quality than the cheapy nasty stuff you might find at B & Q (ATV sheffield has a whole bit about coax). Leave the coax were it is.

Have a look at the digital UK link, etc. Your just 8km from the Bluebell transmitter, whcih ordinarly would mean your getting far too much signal (search for 'too much of a good thing' on this site). On the other hand, DigitalUK thinks your recpetion could be patchy for certain mux'es. Could you find out which transmitters those TV's are tuned into, and what the signal strength is across the muxes? I cant really check the terrain (it just brings up Roucefall), but I'm sure Dave Lindsay or JB38 would be more help.

Steve : Although being located at just over 5 miles away from the Bluebell Hill transmitter, the terrain indicator reveals multiple obstructions to the signal path from said transmitter starting at around 1.75 miles prior to your particular area, this being a possible reason for your problem.

Taking this fact into consideration, if at all possible, you should try and make one or two enquiries with others in your immediate area to find out if reception problems of a similar nature to your own are also being experienced elsewhere, if they are, then this will save you wasting time searching for something which is effectively outwith your control.

That said though, you should carry out a signal strength / quality check on the BBC1 and ITV1 channels stored in your TV or box for the purpose of ensuring that the tuner has not stored Freeview channels from Crystal Palace rather than Bluebell Hill, Crystal Palace which uses lower channel numbers, therefore being scanned first by your tuner, indicated as also being receivable in your location albeit with a somewhat less reliable signal.

Bluebell Hills channels being : 46 (BBC1) - 43 (ITV1) - 40(HD) - 45 - 39 - 54 - 32

Crystal Palace : 23 (BBC1) - 26 (ITV1) - 30 (HD) - 25 - 22 - 28 - 33 - 35

Since the change of channel numbers I have tried re-tuning our TV twice but still cannot get 5 USA. The channel 21 slot says VIVA only available in the day. Please help, we watch 5 USA a lot, or did until recently and we miss it.
