Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Angus transmitter area
I was up in Braco yesterday looking at a problem a friend of mine was having with his TV reception, they stay on the back road from Braco to Gleneagles, giving the postcode would be misleading as its in the FK Falkirk area.
They have a freeview TV and their outside roof mounted aerial was pointing towards Strathallan, the actual village, their picture was pixelating often. I checked out the nearest TV transmitter on the Wolfbane site and it told me that the nearest transmitter was Strathallan, when I checked the compass bearing for this it pointed in the direction of Sherrimuir 3.4 miles away, I then altered the direction of the aerial and re-tuned the TV, we managed to pick up 34 channels.
The question is, is the Strathallen transmitter the best one to tune in to and is it in Sherrifmuir?

We ask for a full post code so that the system this website uses can determine which transmitter is best suited to the precise location indicated by the full post code, you may have noticed the small blue boxes underneath some posts that have given the full post code. They contain the technical information we need to judge whether there is a problem and advise on remedial actions.
That it is part of the Falkirk Royal Mail delivery area is irrelevant to us contributors - but the information about transmitters and reception most certainly are useful and is only available when a full post code is given.
