I live in Bristol Road on the northern side of Sherborne . Although the Mendip transmitter map shows my location as being in it's area, it appears that the Stockland Hill transmitter is better. Why? I have now bought a high gain class A arial and find that it works fine roughly lined up - your site shows it has a bearing of 248 degrees from me - is that bearing to true north or is it a compass bearing - if it is a true north bearing what correction should I make to compass bearing?

Phil Wallace: The power of the transmitter broadcast divided by the distance squared gives your the power received at the aerial, so the most powerful signal can come from anywhere as no two transmitters have the same output level.

You can find out the current magnetic variance here - Magnetic Declination - it is about 3 degrees west for you at the moment.

Thanks for that Brian - does that mean that I have to add the declination to the 248 degrees, or subtract it - or is the 248 degrees a magnetic bearing that does not need correcting? Sorry if I seem a bit dense but, at least in this respect I am denser than a particularly dense thing.

Phil Wallace: You take three from the 'true north' baring, making the 'magnetic baring' 245.

Hello,
I live at Grid Ref ST014070 about 80 mts above sea level and am looking at replacing my loft aerial which is a contract wideband. Looking at several sites should I get a Group A for Stockland hill or stick with a wideband. My reception is mostly good, signal strength of 80%, except for a bit of breakup. This aerial also feeds a DAB radio which is also good. I would welcome some advice on this.
Thank you
Dave

David George: Please located a group A aerial on the roof, not in the loft.

You must use a suitable aerial for DAB reception.
