The roof aerial gives a good signal on channels 30 & 48 , variable signal on channels 57 , 60 & 66 but NO signal on Channel 68 .
One Bedroom indoor aerial which supplies a signal via a booster to two other bedrooms through HT Leads gives a good signal on ALL 6 Channels when there are transmitted from Belmont on Full power .

Andrew Smith: Obviously local conditions are applying in your area as a trade predictor indicates Ch60 reception at a virtually non receivable level, Ch66 as OK and with Ch68 & Ch57 shown as variable.

On August 17th the first four Mux's (new Ch's 22-25-28-30) show as being good reception at the location given, but its not until 23rd November that the remaining two (Mux C. Ch53 & Mux D. new Ch60) come up to similar levels as the others.

You are located at 49 miles away from Belmont and bedroom aerials at that distance aren't really the best idea, even although I do realise that reception from Belmont can be amazing good in certain areas skirting South of the transmitter, but if at all feasible I would recommend that you use your roof aerial to feed into a loft mounted powered splitter and use that for distribution of signals to the other bedrooms, as the outcome is guaranteed to be much more satisfactory.

Andrew Smith - Just a general comment - Satellite dish installations are bot neccesarly a "No No" in conservation areas. If a dish can be sited unobtrusively (They don't always require installation to buildings or chomney stacks) but can possibly be placed at ground level. Dish reflectors can also be supplied in clear plastc see through material. I thought I would point this out, but not suggesting you should change your existing installation or the advice given by JB38.
