Hi, I presently recieve weak signal through my present aerial which points towards Netherton Braes ( 0.5m away) I have been informed by my aerial installation engineer that I require a new aerial and booster as the transmitter at Netherton Braes is shutting down at switchover. from what I can find online Ithink this is nonsense. Can someone please confirm this, cheers

Marcos Brooks: No transmitter is shutting down at switchover. Details of the services provided after switchover are at the top of the page.

Please report your "aerial installation engineer" to you local council's Trading Standards.

Marcos Brooks: The transmitter at Netherton Braes does not currently transmit digital signals. If you have poor quality pictures on analogue, then you probably do need to have the aerial and/or cables replaced.

If you're picking up digital signals now, they're probably coming from the Black Hill transmitter. Check whether the aerial's rods are pointing side-to-side or up-and-down. If they're up-and-down the aerial is intended for use with Netherton Braes, and you're getting much less digital signal than you could be getting if you had the right aerial.

Netherton Braes will transmit only the public service multiplexes after switchover - it will be a 'Freeview Light' transmitter. For the full range of channels you would need to use Black Hill. This should be possible with a normal-sized aerial, and if you're only feeding one TV, without amplification.
