We've just installed a class 1 digital aerial with a signal booster and new coax cable but only manage to find 8 channels. They are all perfect but it only seems to be itv1 + 2, channel 4 + 5, film4 and more 4

What could be the reason for this? I'm about to buy a satellite dish and receiver but can really do without the extra expense.

Thank you

Johan: You are only likely to receive the PSB (Public Service Broadcaster) channels. Aerials installed for analogue on the Hope transmitter would be expected to work for all channels it carries.

As you are not able to receive from Emley Moor, you will have to look to Freesat or other satellite service.

What about the bbc channels. Is there any chance of getting them or shall I just give up and go with freesat?

Failed to mention that we only get the PSB2 group and I would love to know what I can try to get the PSB1 (BBC) group as well.

Johan: Unfortunately only the main transmitters which serve relatively large number of viewers get all the channels. For an explanation see:

Londonderry (Northern Ireland) Freeview Light transmitter | ukfree.tv - 11 years of independent, free digital TV advice

Try manually tuning to UHF channel 28 for BBC services. Perhaps you need to adjust the aerial's alignment.

Johan: With regards to trying a manual tune on C28, after you enter the channel number do "not" press search or scan but wait and see if anything is being indicated on the signal strength / quality bars, because even although the BBC channels were not picked up on your previous auto-tune its not necessarily the case that nothing at all was received, but just possibly one that was under the level required to enable the TV or box to store it.

Can your neighbours receive the BBC OK? and where have you installed the aerial?

Johan: One thing to be aware of is that the Shatton Edge transmitter is only 26 degrees clockwise of the Hope one, it also being vertically polarised.

So on ITV, see whether you're tuned to Hope on C22 or Shatton Edge on C54, this information usually being given on the signal strength screen.

Shatton Edge is further away but it's more powerful. You don't have line-of-sight to Shatton Edge and it's touch and go as to whether you do for Hope.

If you have aligned your aerial using Shatton Edge on C54 then its BBC is on C58. However, you might find that reception from Hope is better and so you would want to scrub round C54 and try aligning your aerial for best reception of C28 and C22.

Dave Lindsay / Johan: As far as I can see both stations are indicated with a clear line-of-sight from your location, albeit with Shatton edge just having!, Shatton Edge @ 2.8miles / 108 degrees and Hope @ 1.1 miles / 84 degrees.

jb38: Where are you getting the figure from for the height of the Shatton Edge transmitter?

mb21 quotes the structure height as being 45m. The relevant page on this site quotes 415m AOD. Both of these result in the same plot:

Terrain between ( m a.g.l.) and (antenna m a.g.l.) - Optimising UK DTT Freeview and Radio aerial location


Your plot shows the Shatton Edge transmitter tower to be approximately 330m high! Are you drunk already?


This is my plot to the Hope transmitter, which shows it's touch-and-go as to whether there is line-of-sight, or certainly no blockage of the first Fresnel zone:

Dave Lindsay: Yes, you are quite correct! I just noticed the error when your posting querying the info came in, the error caused by not having altered the height referred to.

Of course that takes Shatton Edge out of the equation thereby leaving Hope as the only option other than Freesat, although it will be interesting to find out if anything is indicated on the signal bars after C28 has been entered as it will be rather odd if nothing is.
