Freeview reception at GL15 4TU


Terrain between GL154TU 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.

What do the map symbols mean?

Anyone else lost UHF60 from whitehawk hill.

It has me puzzled.. Freeview Box finds with no issues, but TV doesn't since last week.

Putting aerial into tv directly doesn't make any difference

RJ: Try changing the aerial lead from the box to the TV - different tuners have different sensitivities, so check signal strengths that its not the system and the TV has gone first.

But if the box is fine, then so should the TV, unless whatever is connecting the two together has a problem, in which, check the fly lead...

Nothing on my setup has changed.. Channels were there last week and FREEVIEW say no works has taken place on this transmitter this month, so no reason why no signal on TV but full signal on box..

Can only guess TV is fubared!
