we have been experiencing lots of picture fragmenting in the past week or so (end of September to today 11th October ) . The " new channels message " came up on the tv so I retuned it but it seems no better. We have a booster aerial to install but need the exact direction to the Rosehearty transmitter to point it.
Our existing aerial in mounted within our roof space and may not be correctly aligned.

Many Thanks

Julie Rowe:

You are only 7km from the Rosehearty transmitter which is at a bearing of 55 degrees from your location.

It is highly unlikely that you will need an amplified aerial system as you are so close to the transmitter.

If you click on the small blue box labelled 'digitaluk trade' at the bottom of your post it will tell you more details.

Note also that there has been some engineering work going on at the transmitter.
