Also BBCB is currently on UHF58, and ARQA(COM5) is currently on UHF59.

Hi, I have been having problems with my Satellite signal from the Midhurst transmitter as I have to turn off the Freeview input to get a good satellite signal my TV engineer tells me it is because you have been using the top range for 4G?
Please advise me what I should do?

Vivienne Legge: This website has no connection with the transmitter company or any broadcaster. The Midhurst transmitter does not broadcast a satellite signal, it is a terrestrial digital TV signal (satellite TV is broadcast from satellites orbiting many thousands of miles above the equator). Are you trying to receive a satellite signal from a dish or Freeview from an aerial, as your post seems to be confusing both? 4G mobile internet services are nowhere near the frequencies used by satellite broadcasts, however the mobile networks do use the 800MHz band (which used to be the top end of the UHF band used for terrestrial TV) for 4G services. Any interference caused by 4G can easily be solved by connecting a filter (you can get one for free from the https://at800.tv website), which the engineer should have recommended if they believed that to be the cause of your problems.
