Thanks Briantist. Will this mean that I have to orientate the aerial for horizontal polarisatition? I cannot receive this from waltham with the present orientation. I am in eastwood (4 miles from the Kimberly mast) and the compass direction to both masts is almost identical.

Further to my comments at the end of September, I have left the aerial pointing to Nottingham (Kimberley) I had decided that I would do without the Sky news multiplex, as I have VM in my main room.
I decided to network the aerial signal to four tvs using a Wickes 4way amp and power supply in my loft,leaving the Televes masthead amp in place fed from the new amp power supply. I can now get almost 300 channels, with the Sky muliplex being of excellent strength and quality on two frequencies at all times in all weathers. I can also receive East mids, West mids and Yokshire news with the same quality. The best 30 quid I have spent lately!
Thought this might be of use to someone in the Eastwood area experiencing the same problems which I had.
