Maybe I could angle my antenna a little more to the south. It may have a double positive effect, reducing the signal from Hannington so I need less or no attenuation, plus it may reduce the signal from Crystal palace enough to eliminate the interference. Gotta be worth a try right? I'll have a go tomorrow. Before I go buying another antenna.

That's certainly worth a try Dre as I mentioned in a response here to Darren on the 22nd May.

Since I last wrote, I was reluctant to fiddle with the aerial, I was resigned to the loss of COM7 and COM8 and their channels. Certainly lots of other people in the Reading area were similarly affected.

But now I've noticed that both COM7 and COM8 are available again on all our TVs. I think the signal strength has reduced a bit but we have the all-important quality back. Presumably the engineers have addressed the Berkshire black hole that the SFN had caused.

Brian J Willis:

As you are only 31 km from the Hannington transmitter you should be getting excellent reception. It may be that with such a large high gain aerial and an amplifier that you have far too much signal, you do not want 100% but between 60% and 85% signal strength. Please check what strengths your TV indicates. If it is too strong try removing the amplifier.

Also check that your are coreectly tuned to Hannington, using channels 45, 42, 39, 40.43.46, 55, 56 and the local services on 32 and 34. You need a wideband aerial to receive all those multiplexes. That should be aimed at 247 degrees and have the small rods mounted horizontally.

There are also several mobile phone masts closeby so you need to be careful to avoid the signal they radiate, which would be seen as interference on your system.
