chris: Strange to say, but Portwood is not indicated on the trade reception predictor as being possible on your post code, albeit that in real terms it might well be.

I would concentrate on Winter Hill though, (@ 22miles) as that will provide you with the maximum range of services when compared to Portwood which is Freeview "light" transmitter, with limited ones.

(Moel-Y-Park is also shown as fully possible from 21st of September).
