Hi
I am in Se18 ( plumstead area ) I have an aerial in the loft facing south west towards shoots hill (crystal palace is over on the other site which is parley why we have such a poor signal in se18 .
A few years ago i put foil on the wall just behind the aerial which had improved the reception in the loft. Over all the reception has improved recently .
What i have notice is we are also getting transmission from multiplex from BBC Bedfordshire. I can watch the local news on channel 1 ( BBC 1 London south east ) as well as on channel 800 which give me BBC 1 ( look east - Bedfordshire ) ? I could only assume the multiplex for BBC Bedfordshire has much strong signal and is must be bouncing off shooter hill . When we have lost BBC 1 from crystal palace. I can still get a very good picture from Bedfordshire. The multiplex has BBC 1, 2 cbbc ect. On channel 800 to 804.
BBC look east Bedfordshire in on channel 800 and BBC south east London is on channel 1 is because the TV is set to the post code SE18 1RN.
