tony mccaul: Yes, Muldonagh will supply you with Freeview. An outside aerial is generally preferred and as you would probably be best served by using it.

The only thing to be wary of is that Muldonagh will only relay the Public Service channels which carry BBC standard definition and high definition, BBC radio, UTV, UTV+1, UTV HD, ITV2, Channel 4, Channel 4+1, Channel 4HD, E4, More4 and Channel 5.

Unfortunately this isn't likely to change and you don't appear to be in an area that is served by a full service transmitter.
