Freeview reception at NN4 8AW


Terrain between NN48AW 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?

Lesley Horner: Have you checked whether any of your neighbours in the block are having the same problem with Freeview? If they are you need to report it to whoever is responsible for building maintenance and get them to send someone to investigate.

Durham Knowles: I don't know which transmitter you mean by Four Lanes, your coverage prediction shows that you should get good reception from the main transmitter at Redruth but poor coverage from the much nearer (but low powered) Truro relay. Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV and in the loft?

I have no Freeview (TalkTalk Box and Samsung TV) reception here in Guildford from Crystal Palace on certain channels. The problem channels appear to be anything on com7 or com8.

I have resetretuned several times both before and after the transmitter work that was planned for 060618 but no difference.


Signal strength appears good (60-70) and quality at 100.

Trevor Lupton: OK so they moved Com7 & 8 to CH55 & CH56!

Guess I'll need a new aerial if I really want BBC Four HD & BBC News HD

Trevor Lupton: COM7 & COM8 changed frequency at Crystal Palace several weeks ago. If you don't have satellite or cable you may be eligible to have a replacement wideband aerial fitted free of charge, which can be arranged by contacting the Freeview Advice Line (see link below).

Hi, not sure if this is the right place to ask about DAB coverage...if so could anyone advise where the DAB transmitters are in this part of Suffolk please https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.1222649,1.0349945,11.39z
....car DAB coverage for Absolute radio 70's in this area - mainly between the A14 Copdock and the A140 Coddenham is abysmal and yet I can pick up pretty much all other DAB stations without any issues

thanks
