I'm in Holme Next the sea on the main road , is it possible to get reception from the Burrnham transmitter by simply pointing an Ariel in the right direction and connecting the cable to the TV . It seems the signal should be strong enough having looked at the green signal strength map. Also is there a specific type of Ariel required or will a normal " high gain" one suffice?

Colin Campbell: In theory, yes, but as we explained last April, its more complex than that, and frankly, you dont need to.

Use your main aerial for Belmont - you'll get the full number of channels. Brianist pointed out that you could use a diplexer to allow you to get the local transmitter from another aerial. Its not even very far, so you could even get away with a set-top thing, or certainly one in the roof.

You subsequently said that you have a dish on the side of the house. My advice then is the same as now - buy a cheap Freesat receiver, and use that for your local news - you can set the region. Thats the cheapest and easiest way to get both the full number of channels (via Belmont), and local programmes (via the dish).

Thanks , I'm not a thick as it seems , after I posted the enquiry I looked up a and saw I had asked the same things a few months ago , just a bad memory ! I'm blaming it on the fact that it was summer and TV wasn't at the forefront of things at the time.

I will research my previous questions prior to posting next time!
