I am surrounded by transmitters (some relays/repeaters no doubt) but I can't find out which would give the best reception with a decent aerial so as to choose which aerial would be best. I am 6 km from the Bexhill one and could be in line of sight but holding up an indoor 9.99 aerial outside gives nothing. Heathfield at 299deg. is 26 km away and not much in the way but no signal. Due North which might be Hastings or Hollington Park masts at 1.6 and 3 km hidden from me gives a good signal holding the aerial above my head. If aerial on 1st story roof it gives nothing in any direction.

The aerials on near surrounding houses are in every direction. The Heathfield mast is Group BH - H? did I misread that? Heathfield and Bexhill have Horizontal polarisation but Hastings is Vertical - a problem if I buy H type but V is the best one?
Am I confused? Yes. How should I proceed - get a man in?
