aerialman: Lark Stoke - I contacted Ofcom and (c) should read "BBCB", it says this on the Freeview on Lark Stoke TV transmitter | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice page.

Arfon matches the Ofcom document at 2kW. The maps have not yet been regenerated as that takes several days and the code still needs fixing.

I have two tv's with freeview built in and one external freeview box. On all three i do not recieve ITV1, CH4 or CH5.
I believe I am pointing to the Waltham transmitter, is this transmitter delivering all the digital signals or is it more likely that I have an aerial problm.
Postcode for reference DE24 9NE.

Phil: You should get perfect reception from a rooftop aerial point at Waltham. Please can you see Single frequency interference | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice ?

My aerial is pointing east therefore I assume its Waltham. Digital BBC is fine but ITV freezes and/or breaks up. More on a tv with lengthy aerial run. What do you suggest?

I live near to the Derby Transmitter (DE23 1DB is my postcode). I currently get my signal from waltham. My house if fairly low and signal strength is a problem. Will the Derby Transmitter be an option after August or will it not carry all the channels?

I have lost ITV1, 2 Channel 4 and Channel 5 since Tuesday 12th April. I have tried retuning several times to no avail. Any help suggestions to get the signal back for these channels would be appreciated.
