Freeview reception at FK15 0JH


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.

Tom: In which case it would appear to be a fault with the aerial system and should be reported to the party responsible.

I've just set up a high-gain 48-element aerial in my loft. Should I point it towards the regional tv mast (Nottingham) 30-40 miles away or a freeview light mast about 1 mile away (near Leicester Tigers Rugby)

Steve Mak: Waltham (H polarisation @ 19miles / 49 degrees) is indicated as providing the best signal and with the terrain indicator showing a clear line-of-sight between the transmitter and your location, this of course excluding any man made structures or vegetation such as trees.

Steve Mak: At your location using the Freeview light mast is pointless as both Waltham and Sutton Coldfield offer stronger signals and the full Freeview service. It is intended to serve a small corner of South Leicester that (possibly) is screened by tall buildings or suffers from reflections to the signals arriving from the main transmitters. It is likely that there are relatively few viewers who actually use that transmitter.

I can't receive channels on frequency 21 from sandy heath. CB1 9YE.

I have received it in the past from the same aerial (loft which I lack access to), but because I normally use cable TV, I can't pin down what has changed when.

All other channels have excellent reception - BBC/ITV/C4 in particular have 100% signal and quality.

Interestingly when I manually scan on 21, it picks up strength (around 90-100%), but quality is always 0 and no channels are found.

I bought a variable attenuator in case the signal is too strong, it it does reduce signal strength (including manual scan on 21), but what ever I set it at it never finds channels.

My parents less than half a mile away get the HD channels no problem. I even tried the same HD box to exclude equipment.

Before I hire an aerial expert to install an external wideband, any ideas?

Steve Mak: that's great. Many thanks. Aerial is pointing in general direction of roof top aerials on neighbouring properties and has picked up good enough signal.

Greetings (2013-12-29) we are looking for some advice please. Our Free-view picture 'collapses' after a while. It is fine when switched on, then eventually makes a horrible sparking sound, and the picture goes into scrambled little blocks. We then switch off. What causes this? It does it every day when we switch on the TV. We are at SN3 5BG and our TV aerial is roof mounted with signal from Oxford. We are on a shared aerial, and the other residents don't seem to have this problem. Your comments would be appreciated. Regards, Bill

Bill Wardhaugh:
That you are on a communal aerial and others have no problems strongly suggests the problem is with your TV. To check this, try seeking the help of a neighbour who has no such problem and connect your TV set to their aerial socket (hence you need to seek their assistance to let you take your TV into their apartment). If the TV behaves the same, it is faulty and needs attention from a qualified service engineer, or replace it with a suitable new TV set.
