The bright green areas shown where the signal from this transmitter is strong, dark green areas are poorer signals.

steve: For lots of information, see ATV Sheffield's website: www.aerialsandtv.com

The Digital UK coverage predictor will give you some idea. If you go to the Digital UK website and enter your post code and house number and tick the box that says that you're in the trade and it will give an idea of the likely chance of success. Local obstructions will affect reception but they won't be taken into account by the predictor.

If possible, you probably need to try and receive from Winter Hill (to your west) as it broadcasts all the services. Littleborough (to your east) relays only the Public Service Broadcaster multiplexes (BBC, ITV1, ITV2, C4, E4, More4, C5 and a few others).
