Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Olivers Mount transmitter area
A Group K aerial will cover all the UHF channels that multiplexes on Olivers Mount currently use or may ever use in the future if there were to be any further planned changes (of which there is no mention).
That said, it depends on where you are - if you are in a location that currently has weak reception of the COM multiplexes and possibly BBCB HD, then you might be better with a Group A which just covers the UHF channels currently used and might give a little more gain BUT it depends on exactly which aerial you may buy, not all makes are the same!
We'd need a full postcode to look at your predicted reception to possibly give more informed advice.
Whichever aerial, it should be mounted with it's rods vertically for Olivers Mount.
