neil: In answer to your two questions:
1. You point an aerial to a full-service transmitter.
2. You will have to ask the engineer as only he/she will know! The most likely answer is that it isn't possible to receive from a full-service transmitter, although you would have to ask as to your chances and this is what it would be as you may be in a location where you can't see the transmitter, which is why the Haltwhistle transmitter was installed.
