Hi, why is there no map for NE25 9UY for checking signal strength? My brother lives there and there's virtually no Freeview signal strength. He has installed a high signal strength K band aerial and still gets virtually nothing. His TV aerial has a pre amplifier and then goes into a distribution amplifier which I installed since I'm a electrician and have fitted numerous of these home distribution amplifiers and TV aerials without any problems. He has tried to get a signal with just a small tv (in signal reception, strength and quality mode) placed on the roof with the aerial plugged directly into it, still with no joy. Could you please tell me why the signal is so weak there and what is the solution to the problem?
Kind regards
Glen

Glen Lucas: Putting that postcode into the detailed coverage checker on Freeview's corporate website gives a prediction of strong signal from both Pontop Pike (222 degrees compass bearing) and Chatton (336 degrees bearing) transmitters. A weak signal is predicted from the temporary mast at Bilsdale Quarry, so maybe he just needs to turn the aerial around to point at a different transmitter.

We have been receiving excellent signal on all mpxs from the Nottingham transmitter for a number of years. Since around the end of Oct 2021, we have lost virtually all signal on channel 48 - I have recordings of programmes in October to prove it worked! I have followed all the recommended reset procedures and checked the aerial (loft mounted), amplifiers and cables (I am a qualified electronics engineer) to no avail. Signals on channels 38 and 50 are at strength 10 and there is a 5G filter installed (I have tried without it). Any ideas?

Edward Slater:

I assume when you say you've checked the cables that includes continuity of the coax core.
Unfortunately the UHF channel list on the Nottingham transmitter page isn't fully up-to-date. The Local multiplex was moved from C50 to UHF C44 during the 700MHz clearance.
The correct UHF channels for Nottingham In the multiplex order PSBs1-3, COMs4-6, Local are -
C27, C24, C21, C33, C36, C48, C44 . It's vertical polarisation.

There is no transmitter in the country transmitting on any channel above C48 other than the temporary COM7 HD mux on C55, not broadcast from Nottingham.

If you have signal on C50, I don't suppose you have any analogue modulators from older equipemnt running ie old Sky boxes, Games consoles etc. If so shift them right to the top of the band.
If not, you need to find out what this signal is. It could be saturating your front end and desensitising it so C48 signal is weakened.

What does your TV tuning section show for signal strength and quality for all the multiplexes?
