Not sure if you can help? We live 1/2 mile and line-of-site from the transmitter aerial. When we were on analogue service years ago, we barely needed a receiving aerial - a paperclip would have done! Same with analogue FM radio - all the radios in our house have the aerials retracted or else they overload. Digital TV reception is rubbish though. We only have a small indoor aerial but why should we need more? You can see the transmission site out the window! You should be able to receive a signal on the fillings in your teeth! I can't work out if the problem is overload, or reflected signals, or are we living in the shadow of the signal because we are too close to the foot of the mast? I'm happy to buy a better aerial....if that is the problem, I just don't understand why it would be needed. Thank you.
