Freeview reception at PO20 0SU


Terrain between PO200SU 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.

As previously stated many, many times, True Entertainment has been mioved to the local multiplexes. As you have not given a full post code, only co-ordinates, we cannot tell you whether the transmitter you use has any local multiplexes.

Going by the links in your post, the one to digitaluk, you can receive a number of transmitters at your location. Best reception is from Carmel which doesn't have a local mux. There's a local mux at Kilvey Hill, but reception of all muxes from there is far from brilliant. HTH.
