Gerry:

Without a full postcode it's not possible to look at the predicted reception at your location and which transmitter(s) and multiplexes you might be able to receive. There are many (main) transmitters listed for Planned Engineering at present with "Possible weak signal" which MIGHT be the explanation, but we need to see what the Freeview Detailed Coverage Checker is giving for your location.

To add to the above, it might be helpful if you could say which direction your aerial is pointing and whether the rods are vertical or horizontal.

I live in Felixstowe IP11 9JZ. Can someone tell me the Freeview Channels I should use to manually tune my tv/pvr. Thanks

Alan Haynes:

That will rather depend on which way your aerial is pointing, there are actually a number of choices that you might receive, most requiring ideally a Group K aerial (although Group T /Wideband would do), but the most reliable are likely to be the main Sudbury transmitter which has all 6 main multiplexes or the Felixstowe Light transmitter which only has the 3 main PSB multiplexes (PSB1/BBCA, PSB2/D3&4, PSB3/BBCB HD).

For Sudbury, the aerial should be pointing virtually due W (bearing 273 degrees) with the rods horizontal, and for the Felixstowe relay, bearing 156 to 159 degrees depending on exact location, that's approx. SSE, rods vertical.
For Sudbury, PSBs1-3, COMs 4-6, it's UHF C44, C41, C47, C29, C31, C37 and
For Felxistowe, PSBs1-3, it's UHF C33, C35, C42
If you don't have an HD/T2 tuner, ignore C47 and C42.

Hi, I've been trying for many years to get decent viewing at my home. CH3 8BA, every checker I look at tells me Moel-y-parc is the transmitter to aim for. The problem is I live in a dip and and surrounded by hills close to my home. I have no line of sight. I've tried a number of aerials but nothing is offering a consistent picture.
To stand any chance I think I'd need a pole on the chimney at least 18ft to ensure I clear the hills.
Any thoughts that could help me?

David: Do you have a clear view of the sky to the south/south east? If so, consider getting Freesat, which will give most of the channels available on Freeview as well as various others via free to air satellite (i.e. a one-off cost for the dish, cabling and receiver, with no ongoing subscription cost).
