Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Mendip transmitter area
9:48 AM Frome
I don't have any problems with freeview though sometimes on some tv stations the signal is rather weak, it appears to depend on the weather.
My question is...... my roof aerial currently points towards the Mendip transmitter near Wells. Should I point it towards the Frome transmitter?
Thanks in advance,
