hi just wondering if the wrekin transmitter is now at its strongest output, i live in kidderminster dy10 1lf, and unfortunately according to aerial installer i can only get a signal from the wrekin! my signal is pretty poor on some channels eg more four and itv3 and 5* and i cant get alot of the chanels such as itv4, pick tv, film 4 etc, my aerial is approx 18months old and is mounted on the roof, is this the best its going to get?

terry: The COM muxes from The Wrekin are currently using temporary frequencies at low power.On 28th September 2011 the frequencies will be changed and power increased. The Digital UK postcode checker currently does not make any prediction for reception of the COM muxes from The Wrekin, after 28th September reception is shown as poor. It does however predict that you should already have a full Freeview service from Ridge Hill with good reception on all muxes, and after 21st September 2011 all six muxes should be available from Sutton Coldfield, all with excellent reception. These predictions are, of course, subject to no local obstructions such as trees or tall buildings blocking the signal path.

Central frequency range aerial on roof and can get all programs on mux's PSB1, PSB2, COM4, but not mux's COM5 & COM6. The TV's indicated signal strength and quality for rf channel 41 is 63% and 66% respectively. All programs on this frequency tune in okay, where as the sig level and strength for rf channel 44 is only 61% & 58% but no programs are found. Is this likely to be due to the lower power output level for mux COM5 although it's indicated as being the same output level as COM4 which gives me no problem. Is the power output going to be increased from the indicated 10Kw in the near future?
Kind regards from A1batman.

A1batman: The COM channels do not have as wide a coverage as the PSBs. They are only carried on the largest transmitters and in some cases are at lower power, as is the case with The Wrekin.
Have you had your Group A aerial replaced with a wideband (or Group K) one?
How does the strength of PSB1 and PSB2 compare to COM4?
The sensitivity of a Group A aerial will drop off outside of the Group.
For aerial groups, see:
Aerials, TV Aerial and Digital Aerial
Some example gain (sensitivity) curves:

If you do have a Group A aerial (red tip) and am looking for information, either to be briefed when you get a professional in, or to do it yourself or get a friend who likes heights to do it, then see:
