Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Sudbury transmitter area
I live in the SS13 3ND postcode area of Essex. I am about 4 miles from the Rouncefall TX.
Can you please tell me why I get good service on also everything.........apart from my local ITV service. Which I choose ITV Anglia as it is best from reg news, along with BBC East (East).
However the service for ITV Anglia from Rouncefall here at my postcode, is Pitsea, Essex, is the worse signal, at many times. All the other channels from this site is 100 per good.

The digitaluk trade predicition, at the bottom of your post, suggests that reception from Rounvefall Lite transmitter to be poor and variable. The only transmitter shown as giving good reception, subject to local variations of terrain or buildings, is Bluebell Hill, which is a full service transmitter. Rouncefall is at a bearing of 70 degrees East and Bluebell Hill is at 174 degrees East. They both use a Group B or a Wideband aerial with the rods horizontal. You should check the direction of your aerial with the aid of a compass and if it is aimed at about 174 degrees you should tune to Bluebell Hill. ITV Anglia is likely to always be variable and poor as it is not available from Bluebell Hil.
