Idle (Bradford, England) Full Freeview transmitter | free and
Saturday 15 October 2011 11:26PM

I live in Clayton and get very weak signal from Idle transmitter. There is no line-of-sight for Emley Moor due to terrain. Have wideband aerial on roof. How can I improve reception? Do I need a High Gain aerial or one of them Tri-boom ones?

Thanks for replies.

The aerial is optimised for Bilsdale right now (horizontal) as this gives much better signal then Idle but still not great. You're right both transmitters are pretty much in the same direction.

What about Bradford West transmitter? This is also in the same direction. Am I out of range for given that it serves a local area i guess?

As feared I guess I've got to stick it out and wait until SEPT2012 to tke advantage of FreeviewHD which is built-in into my Panny plasma.
