Local TV on Freeview in Nottingham | Local TV
Saturday 21 December 2013 1:11PM

I live on the outskirts of Nottingham but within the city boundary, and within sight of the Nottingham relay. My aerial however points at Waltham as it is the major transmitter for our region and I have good line of sight.
I have today searched for channel 26 and found a signal of around 98% strength but zero quality (Sony TV). I am on the very edge of the predicted Waltham coverage area for the new local Notts TV but well within the area for the Nottingham relay.
Do you think this means I will get good reception of Notts TV once it starts broadcasting in the New Year? Does a very good signal strength but no quality mean that a carrier signal is being broadcast but no multiplex?
Thank you.

Thanks for comments - started to receive two Freeview channels (791/792) on ch. 26 from Waltham at the end of January (wideband aerial) - 100% strength, 96% quality. Looks like all is set for reception of NottsTV from launch on 29 April.... (52.9912,-1.2157)
