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).

This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Tottington (Bury, England) transmitter.

Can I receive any HD channels free through my aerial in the valley mill lane area of Bury? I want to buy a recordable box but need to find out so I can choose correctly?

Thank you

Darran: Yes, HD services are available from all transmitters. The standard HD services, carried on PSB3 multiplex are: BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Three, CBBC, ITV and Channel 4.

There are two quasi-national HD multiplexes and it would appear that they should be available at your location, you being served by Winter Hill with apparent clear line-of-sight at 10 miles. These are COM7 and COM8.

A full list of Freeview services by multiplex are here:

Darran: To be perfectly honest, all PVR's these days should have HD tuners as standard (Argos are selling some el cheap Bush ones without them, but I wouldn't bother). A T2 tuner is the default, and since that will be the standard tuner within the next couple of years, I certainly wouldn't be buying one without HD.

Best bets? Despite some negative comments about Humax, its the standard one we recommend (the BT version with Youview is actually slightly cheaper), or the Panasonic equivalent. You'll want a hard drive of 500gb or above, and about a hundred and fifty plus is what I'd expect to pay.
