FreeSports is advertised as being on Channel number 95 FreeSports | Freeview However you have it down as CH 64 here: https://ukfree.tv/transmi…dge.
All the usual wipe before rescan has been done several times but still no FreeSports. All comments welcome, even blue ones
Many Thanks.

Chris.SE: Many thanks Chris
My Samsung series 5 is HD T2 (DVB-T2) and reception, here at about 25m above sea level with a clear view towards Rowridge at Worthing, is excellent on other HD channels.
As FreeSport is a new channel I can understand there is some confusion whether the broadcast channel is 64 or not, and the same applying to the multiplex channel Com 8, C37 or C59. However it doesn't matter how much retuning I do I can't find this channel is it live yet?
Regards
John.

Chris.SE: Thanks again Chris

I just so happen to have a Group C/D aerial and connected that up this pm. Did a full rescan with no Ae connected and confirmed no channels were stored. A manual retune only on C56 still shows no signal strength.
I guess with an output of only 18.4kW Worthing is a bit of a push although in saying that some of the French stations I receive are less than that.
Thanks for all your help I think I'll give up for now and wait and see if FreeSports gets moved onto a Mux with more power.

Hello Paul
Although your post code or town etc where you live would be helpful to check reception from the list above it looks as though Ch 91 is on COM8. From my experience above COM8 has limited coverage due to low power output and while a wide band Ae might work a dedicated Group C/D would be better.
As for Channel 50. From a quick look above it seems not to be listed however if you find it note the COM number, your post code and I'll try and help some more.
John.

Keith:
Broadcast CH25 Yesterday and all the other stations on COM 6 are fine here in Worthing. Could I suggest you do another scan, but this time with no aerial plugged in so as to clear the list. Once confirmed it is clear do another rescan.
Hope it helps

Chris.SE: Re Rowridge COM 5 CH 22 Horz has been either low / no power for many days, yet vertical polarisation strengh in Worthing has been 100%
I have both H and V aerials installed so I can switch between the two during time of co-channel interference.
As there's no engineering reports of problems has anyone got any ideas.
Many thanks John.
