Hi. We currently use Dronfield and our aerial is V polarization. Will we have to spin it round to H in August when the transmitter moves over to digital? Moreover, will I need a new aerial, given that this one is only a few months old? Thanks in advance.

rich: If you use Dronfield at the moment then your aerial will be horizontal at the moment.

Vertical polarisation means you are using Sheffield or Chesterfield.

You can already get Freeview services from Sheffield.

You do not need a new aerial or to change your existing aerial around at switchover.
