Freeview reception at KT24 5DX

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.

hi,for viewers who have technical knowledge,is to replace the aluminum dipole in the aerial with copper wire dipole,this must be bent to look like the aluminum dipole and may improve reception,i have done this with a indoor aerial and got a locked picture from hannington at 10ft off the ground ,location nr bicester,but i stress u must have some technical knowledge.

N Mugford:

It is perfectly correct to replace an aluminium dipole with a copper one. However the dimensions are critical. So it would be better to carve an exact replica of the aluminium dipole in a sheet of copper, using the resultant item to replace the original dipole. The need to be an exact copy is to maintain the required frequency range coverage and the impedence presented to the TV set, always required to be 75 Ohms. It would also be wise to protect the copper against corrosion, especially if it were to be placed outside the property where it can get wet.

Having difficulty finding Channel MUX for new Paramount on 57. Our Sony DVR has to be manually retuned for every change, as it prefers distant Cumbria to our local Emley Moor transmitter.
can anyone help, please?

Hi mikep,thank you for yr polite reply,other people seem to be otherwise,in my eperience in using insulated copper wire seems to be fine,the tv or whatevers input circuitry seems to uncritical,i use a set top single element because im in a swamp area from oxford,before i changed it to a copper wire,in spite of the high
field strength it was troublesome,when changed to copper,hannington at 40miles,10ft above the ground produces a locked picture,the only disadvantage of copper sheet is the cost and the work involved.Possibly,in poor signal areas copper would produce a better and more stable picture,its a pity someone in a fringe area cant try it and advise,but again some technical knowledge is needed,tks............

Banacek: this seems to be a problem with todays tv circuitry,the tuner gets pulled to the strongest signal,i have a car radio that wouldnt hold a weak signal in the presence of a stronger signal,possible realign aerial or more directive type fitted.

Is the new Paramount channel free-to-air? If so, what are the required values for my 'Openbox' receiver?

I live at the bottom of a narrow valley that points roughly North/South (it's wider at the North end). Postcode is TA4 2HJ. My nearest, and predicted to be strongest, transmitter is Stockland Hill which is about 31km away to the SE. Beyond that is Mendip which is 55km to the NE.
I have installed a wideband antenna on my roof and I'm getting a pretty stable picture on CH26 (BBC1 etc.) with 100% signal quality but only 20% strength when pointing the antenna to the SW. On CH28 I'm getting 20% signal and quality but no picture. I can't seem to get any signal from any other direction on any other channels.

What's puzzling me is that getting CH26/28 suggests I'm picking up Stockland Hill which is to the SE but my antenna is pointing SW. I could just about understand it working 180 degrees out but not 90!

The only explanation I can think of is that I'm picking up a signal bounced off of the hillside. And because it's a lucky/spurious bounce I'm only getting one channel (if I move 100yds maybe I'll get 28 but not 26!).

Does that sound plausible? Any suggestions for what to try? I realise I'm not exactly in the best place for a TV signal!
