AAutomatic postcode fixes

jb38: The post codes provided do report a low level in trade view. It seems that they have re adjusted the predicted levels in the area, you can actually pick up a 40 - 45dB signal on channels 21,24,27 and 31. I know there will always be differences in predicted / received levels, I was just surprised that the closest transmitter (Reigate Hill - less than 7 miles) is not listed at all, especially as the Dover (+ Midhurst) transmitter is over 70 miles away and you have no hope receiving a signal before or after the switch over yet they are on the map and listed. Seems strange to me - maybe a simple answer.

I have recently noticed a problem with your postcode prediction system in my area. If I search using a local postcode like RH8 9HT or RH9 8ET it lists Crystal Palace as the main transmitter and Heathfield, Croydon,Tunbridge Wells, Dover, Midhurst as others available. It doesn't mention the Reigate Hill transmitter at all and its location is not even marked on the map! Reigate Hill normally provides this strongest signal in the area and it used to be listed on the prediction search. Don't think I am doing anything dumb!
