Freeview reception at ST4 5QY


For reliable and stable Freeview reception, you need an unobstructed path between the TV aerial on your roof and the digital TV transmitter. The map below shows the transmitters predicted to provide a signal at this location.

You can click on any transmitter symbol to show the coverage area as a green overlay on the map. Double click on a transmitter symbol to go to the transmitter information page.

You can also view the ten closest potential '4G-at-800' mobile phone masts within 1.5km of the selected location - these masts may be used for 4G-at-800 mobile broadband services from 2013-2015.

Hi Richard. The aerial should be pointing at compass bearing 111 degrees - that's 21 degrees S of due E, almost ESE.
The Freeview predictor shows you should get good signals from Mendip for the 6 main multiplexes (not the Local one as you are off-beam for that, it's beamed towards Bristol - you can always try a manual tune on UHF C30 as it may be weak and an autotune may miss it).

However, the predictor says you can also get good signals from Wenvoe and Stockland Hill which you may get from sidelobes (even rear ones) of the aerial's reception, so you may have to manual tune Mendip's UHF channels to make sure you get them correctly.
Mendip's correct UHF channels are C32, C34, C35, C48, C33, C36, C30. That's is the order BBCA/PSB1, D3&4/PSB2, BBCB HD/PSB3, SDN/COM4, ArqA/COM5, ArqB/COM6; Local mux.

If you can't get the Mendip (Bristol) Local multiplex, you could try a Manual tune on UHF C37 which is the Local mux from Wenvoe, which you might get off the back of the aerial albeit possibly weak.
Whilst you may not especially want Cardiff local news on LCN7, you may like to get the other channels carried on the mux.
See https://www.freeview.co.uk/corporate/platform-management/channel-listings-industry-professionals for which channels are carried on which multiplex.

Bear in mind that standard Tri-boom's are a wideband aerial unless this is one of the newer K Group tuned versions, so you might need a (free) filter from restoretv.uk if any 4/5G mobile masts using 700MHz set up near you - but you should get a postcard from restoretv.uk if so, but it doesn't always happen.
I'm glad your tri-boom is being loft mounted, they have a high wind loading and would need sturdy mounting if external!
