Craig: Look at www.aerialsandtv.com for information.

As Mark says, if you have a C/D aerial, then it will be unsuitable for Pendle Forest.

What aerial you need probably depends on what sort of signal you have. In the best areas, use a log which are naturally wideband, but have a flatter response than yagis.

If it's not so good, then a Group A yagi aerial as suggested by Mark might be what you're looking for.

Since the re-tune on 10 April we seem to have lost all HD brodcasts (from Pendle Forest I think). I retuned the PVR and it doesn't find the programmes, I left the TV with original tunings but there is "no signal". Not sure if others are experiencing this problem, waiting an answer from the BBC but it's not that easy to find who to report to !

Michael Howe: There was no retune required for Pendle Forest as no channels have changed.
