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).

Chris Atherton:

Assuming your postcode is LL32 8RY, then the Freeview Detailed Coverage Checker suggest that you ought to get a good and reasonably reliable signal (but perhaps not that strong) from Winter Hill - but not COM7, but you might also get the Liverpool Local multiplex but that signal could be poor and not very reliable.
I'd be guessing but your location might be too much in the valley or there's too much high ground to the west of you to get a signal from Llanddona as there's no prediction. (PS. you've posted on the DAB transmitter page rather than the Freeview one, but no problem).

Have a look round at your neighbours rooftops to see what aerials they have.
The Conway transmitter (a "light" relay of Llanddona - PSB multiplexes only) is at bearing 151 degrees (~ slightly S of SSE) and uses vertical polarisation (aerial rods vertical).
Winter Hill is at bearing 67 degrees (~ENE) and uses horizontal polarisation (aerial rods horizontal).
Llanddona would be approx. slightly W of WNW using horizontal polarisation.

Ask any neighbours that have aerials pointing at either of the main transmitters how reliable their signals are and if they can recommend a good local aerial installer would should know what you may expect.
