Freeview reception at CM7 4PY


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.

The Digital signal is poor to say the least 53% on the lower arrays - and as low as 42% at high pressure times - bring back morborne transmitter - we have been hoodwinked into believing the new format and mast locations/arrays will be better - but Its a raymond baxter promise - I for one am not happy with reception. need to have a mast on my bungalow that is 20 feet higher - totally impractical - #dupedbytheboffinsagain

Re my earlier posts on reception issues with com4 from Waltham. Freeview insist I should be on Sandy although locally in the village (Drayton) everyone is on Waltham, and I have seen your comments on computer predictions. Also the Sandy Heath map on this siteshows the Welland Valley LE16 8 RQ in shadow. How can I force a terrain plot for my location on the Sandy Heath page to see if I am in line of sight to Sandy?
Up to now I can only do this to Waltham which your site says is my correct Transmitter.

We are not on Rowridge as we face Portsmouth and are directly onto the Solent. Too many obsticals for us to get Rowridge.

Neil Killip: Although you may well have been informed that Sandy rather than Waltham should provide a better signal at the location given I cant quite understand why, as a terrain prediction from both Waltham and Sandy indicates that the signal path is obstructed from both stations but with Sandy being a tad worse, therefore I can only assume that the Freeview advisor was looking at UK Digital's reception predictor when the statement was made.

Links to all referred to can be seen by opening the undermentioned links, the first being Digital UK's reception prediction.

Same as Kate for Hannington, SO18 Bitterne Park area. Rotten service for a week, have used a (basic) DVB signal meter this morning attached directly to aerial on roof, signal there is a max of 50dB, none at TV end of wire, wire undamaged. Aerial pointing 10 degrees east of due north directly at Hannington, no visible line of sight blockages so ought to be getting a good signal.
Please fix this BBC

I fitted a new aerial to a customers house In the middle of the forest pointing to Hannington, they had issues for a while but like many had major issues this week.

I fitted the new aerial on Thursday this week which had an amplifier so also used a 4G filter, checked with them today and the service has been perfect since install on all 7 TV's in their house.

based on this I think its safe to say its not a transmitter issue.

You might need a 4G filter or possibly you have other issues.

I did fit the new aerial a few feet along the building from the current old aerial location giving it a better reception.

Also re your meter, these are rubbish, they will only give you a signal strength and not quality, this is a big problem as the quality of reception is the most important thing.
It is very easy to have a high strength but poor quality, you are actually better to have a low signal but perfect quality.

regards

jamie stevens: thanks Jamie, I realise the meters are dismal, I was using it principally to orientate the aerial as best I could
ie turn aerial to left until all signal is lost, note position, then turn to right until signal lost, note position, then move aerial to the mid-point, this ended up pointing 10 degrees off north which this website indicates is the Hannington location, so it worked in that way.
Agreed- signal quality is most important. Interested to know 4g may be causing grief, I hadn't been aware of that - will investigate that further
Cheers for the heads-up!

An expert tv aerial fitter tells me the problems at present are caused by unusually high pressure in the upper stratoshere.Hope hes right.

Ever since they have started work on the mendip transmitter... No signal at all! Before it was fine using BTVision box. I live in Weston s Mare. I have had to resort to buying a freesat box utilising the dish that was left on our building by previous owners. I just want to know how long are they going to take with these planned works all over uk. They have disrupted loads of peoples viewing.
