Are there any plans to increase power from Beacon Hill? I notice the COM muxes on Stockland Hill will be upgraded next year and Beacon Hill will require wideband antenna. We're outside Weymouth and often get a better signal from Beacon Hill than Stockland Hill - probably partly due local topography - but we lose signal from the former - one mux at a time - in high atmospheric pressure conditions so may switch to Stockland. Suggestions welcome.

Thanks Mike, but I don't know how you got BH20, I'm at DT3 6ED so I guess Rowridge would have much less effect.

Mike, thanks for that. I'm surprised Rowridge prediction is so significant. Local topography here definitely favours Beacon Hill - almost line of sight despite the distance - and is against Rowridge, less favourable to Stockland than Beacon but Stockland closer and more power. The situation is not the same throughout this postcode. I guess we'll have to experiment.

Pick TV seems only to exist to advertise Sky, but I have better things to spend money on.
