Freeview reception at 50.8529°N -0.156°E


Terrain between 50.85299575305507,-0.15618562173 and Freeview masts

For reliable and stable Freeview reception, you need an unobstructed path between the TV aerial on your roof and the digital TV transmitter.

The diagrams below show the transmitters you can get a signal from - in order from best to worst. The blue line tests the line-of-sight between an aerial 10 metres above ground level (the line is red if there is an obstruction in the line-of-sight). You may be able to improve reception by raising the aerial higher - for safety's sake consult a reputable aerial installer if you need rooftop access. See below the diagrams for advanced options including selecting the receiver aerial height.

The terrain information (from Ordnance Survey and GIS) does not include forestation (where leaf cover changes with the seasons) or city buildings. The line-of-sight line can appear curved as this straight line moves over the Earth's surface.

When you click on a diagram, you will see map with the location selected shown with this symbol: .Internet Explorer 9+, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari required.Internet Explorer 9+, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari required.Internet Explorer 9+, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari required.

The Uaer Manual for your television will tell you how to add any new multilexes. It will be able to add all the available multiplexes.

If you are still having problems adding multiplexes, try unplugging the aerial and doing an automatic tune whilst it's unplugged, this will clear ALL previous tuning. You should then be able to add any multiplexes you wish.

You put your full post code and house number/name into the Digital UK Coverage Checker at Digital UK - Coverage checker and select the detailed view. That will show you detai;ls of all the transmitters receivable at that location together with the compass direction and all the channels used for the range of multiplexes carrying the TV programmes.

Or click on the "digitaluk trade" link at the bottom of your post. For all 6 available muxes it shows Dover 6km away at 70? and you'll need a wideband aerial to get them all as there's several retune events coming, the first on 22nd August.

Your information is out of date eg - Al Jazeera HD, no longer exists. You should put the date that you last updated the information on each channel list you publish. Then at least people would know that the information might be out of date, instead of thinking that they ned to retune.

Some people having similar issues receiving Saorview and Freeview are wondering if they are now suffering 4G interference since recent channel changes.
