Freeview reception at DY13 8YZ


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.

Please, where can I find the compression format and bitrate of a Freeview radio broadcast, with particular reference to BBC Radio 3 transmissions? Appreciate any help.

I'm on the Guildford transmitter if it makes any difference.

Andy:
We really need some idea of where you are and what equipment you are using. The location, given as a postcode (or that of a nearby shop or post office) helps to show which of the many transmitters might be the preferred option, it also helps to show what the terrain is between you and that transmitter as hills/buildings in the way can affect reception. That assumes you are using Freeview. If, however, you are using Sky or FreeSat, then different considerations apply - hence the need to know what equipment is in use.

Hi, unfree reports possible weak signal from winter hill (granda) which we have been experiencing now for a couple of weeks. Any idea when it will be back to normal. Loft mounted high gain arial pr29sd. Previously consistentlystrong signal.
Possible 4g interference?
Thanks

Roger: Since all indications are that your signal should be really good, it sounds like you have a problem with your aerial. Start with checking the basics, such as the aerial lead from the back of the TV. Ultimately, you might need to call out a professional.

Alecbellamy: You may need to carry out a retune.

Spike is on logical channel number (LCN) 31, this having previously home to 5 USA which has moved to LCN21. If no retune has been carried out then 5 USA may still be on LCN31, meaning that Spike can't take up its native position, meaning your receiver has probably placed it in the 800s.

I have an aerial on the top of a tall pole on the roof of the 3 storey house where I live (so pretty high), and last night (Thursday 30th April) just before 10pm I lost freeview reception completely, getting a 'no reception' message. I switched to freesat where reception was fine. I checked 30 minutes later and still no reception on freeview. This morning I have freeview reception again. Any ideas?

David: This sounds like failure of a signal amplifier or its power supply. Don't assume that just because the light is on that it's functioning normally all it's telling you is that there is power there.
