Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Dover transmitter area
I know my parents have a problem with our theirb aerial but as a short term fix can they use a digital indoor aerial at this location? Is the signal strong enough? The roof aerial was tuned into the main dover transmitter but isee there is a light transmitter in north elham could we use that with the indoor aerial?
Many thanks for your help

IF they can see the mast and the indoor aerial does not have to point through any thick walls, then there is a chance IF they are not too far from it, it's a very very low power relay, but as StevensOnln1 says, we really need that full postcode.
