Further to that said by Richard Cooper, you should also consider using a log-periodic aerial as that will cover all the possible services for the forseeable future, a Group C/D may not fully cover developments in the future.

Alan: in 2009 Ofcom licenced a self help transmitter to serve Ladram Bay Holiday Park. If this is still in use signals are received from Stockland Hill and retransmitted on C49 (PSB1), C55 (PSB2), C48(PSB3), C54(COM4), C56(COM5) and C58(COM6). I am not aware as to which polarisation is used for this transmitter, but as three of the frequencies are shared with the public service relay at Sidmouth it would be logical for the self help to use horizontal polarisation in order to minimise co-channel interference from/to signals transmitted by Sidmouth. Using a log periodic aerial would give the best chance of minimising the effects of co-channel interference, together with careful alignment in some situations being necessary to receive whichever is your chosen transmitter.

KMJ,Derby: Hi KMJ. Since reading your post regarding Ladram Bay to Alan, I wanted to check that the Ladram Bay self-help was still in action and my research has indeed shown that it is, so Alan ought to use that instead of the Sidmouth relay because it will give him a much greater choice of channels, because the Ladram Bay self-help carries 6 multiplexes, i.e. the COM multiplexes are included, whereas they aren't from the Sidmouth relay. Like you, I'm not sure of the polarisation of the Ladram Bay self-help, so we should advise Alan to look at the orientation of the aerial elements on other chalets in the park that are using the park's self-help and imitate those with his own setup. I agree with the sentiments expressed regarding the use of a log periodic, and indeed, I should have thought of this myself!!! Richard, Norwich, Sunday 12th. June, 9:15 p.m.
