Hi I hope you can help me. I recently moved to ascott under wychwood, I live less than a mile from the mast. I am upset that I only have a ltd amount of chanels whereas when I received from Beckley I had all the chanels. So if I changed my aerial, installed a booster, could I receive all the chanels from the beckley mast instead. Thanks

To Bill Gee.Best to enter your postcode on the digital uk postcodechecker site and check for reception of Oxford{beckley] The reason you only get 31 or so is because Ascot' is only a low power 3channel relay,for the full range of six transmitters you will need to use a cd/h or wideband aerial.
