Phil Walpole: Storeton and Moel-y-Parc are only 15 degrees apart from your location, so if you have a good reception of one then you might get good of the other. If you are referring to reception of Moel-y-Parc with your Storeton aerial then this is of course at opposite polarity, so perhaps if you had a horizontally mounted aerial in the direction of MyP you might get stable reception, including COM7 and COM8. You would, of course, have to use Storeton for regional programming.

Phil Walpole: Here is a terrain plot:


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


It looks like anything on the ground within a quarter of a mile of you might cause difficulty, but other than that, at 19 miles you have clear line-of-sight.
