UK Free TV shows the coverage area for a radio transmitter as a coloured overlay (orange for FM, other colours for DAB) on the grey map. We have computed the coverage by combining the terrain with the official radiation pattern. A single click will select the transmitter to view the coverage for a single site, and a double click goes to a page showing full details. Click on the buttons in the right-hand corner of the map to choose from different frequencies (or multiplexes for DAB).

Since Wednesday 27/9/19 big problems. Retuned system and now only get 12 channels at Quality 1, rubbish. Know 3 other people in the Luncarty/Pitcairngreen area with similar issue, one of whom is a pensioner with this as her only TV signal. What's happened/going on?

Retuned the TV yet again this morning, and, lo and behold, it's working fine again, phew. Only 19 TV channels but includes the important ones, quality 5 which is fine. Will need to check with the other three people to see if they are getting good reception now.

You have posted on an Analogue Radio page for your area, rather than the Perth TV page. No matter, there are not any problems being reported there.
Out of curiosity, what time did you do that first retune and only get 12 channels of low quality?

Without a full postcode, we can't see what Freeview gives as predicted reception in their Detailed Coverage Checker for your location. If you had no problems before, by my reckoning you should be getting at least 21 TV channels, not counting Freeview LCN100, and the two Red Button channels (250 & 601). That assumes that you don't have a set with a HD tuner, so not getting 6 HD channels. You might even be able to receive more channels from a different transmitter.

If you were getting problems with the main BBC channels in SD, it could be due to having a very old Group B aerial. If they are a problem, providing you don't have Satellite or Cable TV you can get free help by contacting the Freeview Advice line on 0808-100-0288 where they should be offering to send an engineer to replace your aerial with a Group A which is what you'll need to have satisfactory reception of all multiplexes on the Perth transmitter.
