Freeview reception at CH63 2NU


For reliable and stable Freeview reception, you need an unobstructed path between the TV aerial on your roof and the digital TV transmitter. The map below shows the transmitters predicted to provide a signal at this location.

You can click on any transmitter symbol to show the coverage area as a green overlay on the map. Double click on a transmitter symbol to go to the transmitter information page.

You can also view the ten closest potential '4G-at-800' mobile phone masts within 1.5km of the selected location - these masts may be used for 4G-at-800 mobile broadband services from 2013-2015.

John Randall: Hello, I'm not on Bilsdale but on a transmitter towards Hull, but I haven't had any TV since last night. Transmitter faults are not being shown on TV help websites for any local transmitters including Bilsdale so nobody seems to know what is happening.

John Randall: Hello again. I found out that my transmitter is Belmont and this was listed as no faults. My problem turned out to be an amplifier that had been overloaded by the high-frequency waves generated by a huge flash of lightning. Removing it solved my problem. Good luck at your end.

Looks like the problem was caused by the new 4G mobile service; I suddenly remembered being sent a filter through the post a while ago & when I fitted it & rescanned Freeview it picked up those missing channels plus a few more. Think I may need to buy an aerial booster because there is still an occasional bit of pixelation - can you recommend a good one.

L Whitehouse: Although a potential 4G problem was going to be the next point I was going to bring up, you having pre-empted me on this subject, but the reason I didnt was because 4G generally has a more severe effect on channels from 60 downwards, which applies in the case of Brierley's channel span (excl L-BRM) is 50 -60, whereas The Wrekin is 23 - 47. Anyway, thats neither here nor there now that you have mentioned the 4G filter, but with regards to your query about a booster, the undermentioned link is to an excellent relatively low cost SLX brand variable gain booster sold by Argos, the gain being adjusted to suite the occasion, the point to remember being to fit the 4G filter prior to the aerial input to the booster, because if you fitted it after same then you would be amplifying the very signal you want to eliminate.

L Whitehouse : In addition to that said, your comment on the possible use of a booster would only be applicable if your Freeview reception was, as you suspect, coming from the Wrekin transmitter and "not" Brierley Hill as the signal from the latter should not require any form of boosting, possibly even attenuating! as an overly powerful signal can cause picture break up in exactly the same way as a weak one.

Have a look at your aerial, if the elements are seen to be vertically mounted then the aerial "has" to be facing towards Brierley Hill.

I have noticed that over the last couple of days (Hurricane Bertha fall out) BBC HD Ch 107 has been breaking up, whereas Ch 80 and Ch 1 are fine. I assume this problem is purely weather based. I wonder how much extra data HD requires.
Thanks for any feedback
Mike
