Emley Moor (Kirklees, England) transmitter
Thursday 6 February 2020 6:34PM

Hi up until the December retune I could get BBC4 HD fine, after that I tried multiple retunes and finally tuned it on a very stormy day (Elmley Moor transmitter). It was only on rare times i could actually view it. (a few other channels such as cbeebies HD also disappeared but no great loss.)

After the February retune I was hoping i'd get it back as the transmitter was outputting at 51,200 W on channel 56 as opposed to 5 kw from a local transmitter since December apparently. Unfortunately I still can't get it. I use a horizontal oldish loft aerial. Is there any mileage in me getting an improved aerial ?

Thanks.

Hi (posting this again as first attempt disappeared !)
It's about BBC4 HD. Fine until the December retune, took 6 attempts over several days to finally get it tuned but after that could rarely receive it (only on stormy days). It was apparently only outputting at 5 KW from a "local" transmitter whatever that means.
After the retune of yesterday can't tune it again (channel 56 754 Mhz 51,200 Watts on Com8)
Emley Moor transmitter. I use a horizontal "oldish" loft aerial.

Is there any mileage in buying a new aerial ?
