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 TV 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 5G-at-800 interference) as well as tabulated information (sorted by direction, by received signal strength, by frequency, by service names or by transmitter name).

Stuart Botevyle: Carmel is having engineering work, and there is something in the way about 2.5km from you.

Having said that, your only 17km away from the transmitter, and your getting 93% strength!

I've also got a Sony PVR, and its a sensitive tuner, but pretty robust. However, 93% is the point at which even the Sony starts to break up due to too much signal strength. Take out any boosters, etc, and look here:

MIKEB: To my namesake (!) - have a look at the FAQ's - its the most common question - and you cannot record if you dont subscribe. Thats why a Freesat PVR makes more sense - Sky will cost you £120 a year to carry on recording, which is not far off the cost of a PVR.

Has anyone tried a pole mounted ariel to try for hannington or cristal pallace.both the topographical maps show we are in the shadow of hills either at the bottom of brookfield road wooburn i have stated in the past i was extreamly annoyed when the wooburn "LIGHT" transmitter cannot give us all the channels.maybe if we all planted 50m poles down at this location will give us what we deserve..regards to all.

Is there a problem with the Guildford and crystal place transmitter as the channel signal is going from 21'% to 56%

It was fine around 1600 but now is unwatchable across all channels

James Owen: It seems to be fine, but your only 11km from the transmitter, so I'd check signal strength - might be on the high side?

Ab38 9py have just installed a new toshiba tv in kitchen- cant get stv, channel 4 e4 etc - only Bsc channels picked up. Have tried freeview reset as suggested. We have sky digibox in living room next door. Aerial is in the loft - we are in a bungalow - and is 18 years old. Any advice gratefully received!

Kay Geldart: If your loft aerial is mounted vertically with the elements facing up and downwards then you will be receiving from the local Craigellachie relay transmitter and its STV is on Mux Ch49, if however the elements are positioned horizontally then you will be using the Knockmore transmitter with STV being on Mux Ch23 and so you could try manually tuning in STV using the info for reference.

As you also have a Sky box, then "if" you are feeding the aerial to the TV via the boxes RF in / RFout facility make sure that its internal RF modulator is "not" set on either of the Freeview channels mentioned otherwise its likely to wipe them out.
