Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Knock More transmitter area
According to the Digital UK Coverage Checker, you are just 18 km from the KLnockmore transmitter, see Coverage Checker - Detailed View The channels used are: 31, 37, 29, 33, 36, 48. It is likely that you need to be using a wideband type aerial aimed at the transmitter on a bearing of 138 degrees.
When you say a " normal arial (sic)" ( you actually mean a normal aerial) do you mean one mounted externally on a roof or chimney stack or an indoor type? The indoor types will not be much good in your location so you need an external one properly mounted and aimed.
