Devizes area ( Postcode region SN10 ) gets very bad reception... Are we likely to see an improvement in the near future ? Maybe a nearer transmitter ?

sibryz: I run my own Aerial & Satellite Co in Wiltshire ( Blake Satellite & Aerials ) .
I am getting "PassedOff " by a local cowboy who has no experience and very little knowledge in this field of work. He has his own Co name : Aerials & Vision - has anybody heard any comments about this Co ?
He mainly operates in Devizes. Anyone with any feedback about him please submit it on here.

Hi there, when will the Devizes Transmitter be up and running - and where will it be located ?
My best guess is Jump Farm Hill . . .

Calne local transmitter does not cover the new housing estate, which is only a few hundred yards to the south ! Will this be rectified/ updated in the near future ?
There are a few hundred houses being built and it is a nigtmare trying to get a terrestrial signal.

Mike P : The new development which is called Cherhill view has three quarters of the site just outside the coverage area ! The developers do not care, they have tried ( obviously unsuccessfully) to fit their own aerials aiming at the Mendip TX... I was paid to correct them and managed to get the Calne TX.
Then the developers attempted to get a signal from the local TX, but kept the fitted aerial horizontal - I managed to get them corrected.
It is quite a large site and the rest of the site will get neither transmitter - which is frustrating when you can see it from the bedroom window !
I have told the sales ladies to tell the prospective buyers that their options are Sky or Freesat.
They have not told them that, I have to when they ring me. As I said - Frustrating !

Mike... I agree with you entirely - I was just venting my frustration at the situation. It is quite rare to be able to see the TX and not get a reliable signal ! Especially that close. So far all the aerials I have installed there are log periodic.
As for the C/D aerial for Mendip ... I would use a white or black aerial NOT a green C/D cos it will be of no use in 2019 , when Mendip changes its channel locations down to the 30's
Regards Phil.
