mrs rulings: What I meant to say in the first sentence was that I think Dallington Park is not likely to serve you.

dennny: A test code from the Rugby area used in the reception predictor does not indicate the Dallington Park Freeview light transmitter as being receivable anywhere near to your area, and so your report of the signal breaking up is not really surprising.

The station indicated as providing the best signal in the Rugby area, and which you neighbour across the road is most likely receiving from, is Sutton Coldfield at 29 miles away on a bearing of roughly 301 degrees (dependent on where located), with Waltham @ 35 miles / approx 32 degrees being the second best.

Hello I'd like to find out how good 70 percent q is.

Eddie Murphy : Although a quality indication of 100% is always the target to aim for, however, this figure is not always achievable in every location due to various factors such as the terrain surrounding the area, and so 70% is basically OK provided that its reasonably constant, as rapid fluctuations in same generally results in glitches in reception.

Eddie Murphy : By the way, that said is mainly referring to Freeview reception, another factor that has to be kept in mind being, that the strength and quality indications generally vary from one brand of device to another when connected into the same aerial, the only one factor that does remain the same nomatter what brand of device is being used, being that rapid fluctuations being seen in the quality of the signal nearly always results in picture glitching, accompanied (in some instances) by audio problems.
