Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
Thanks for the previous responses!
Its all aboot the type of aerials.
I,ve did some deep researching and its showing up that the Rosneath is including my house in its range so would i be right in saying i need a Group c/d aerial? Wide band or not?
Also will get a rooftop dab aerial. Any certain type or spec?

Joe: If you're looking at DIYing it, then have a look at the highly informative ATV Sheffield website: A.T.V (Aerials And Television) TV Aerial, DAB Aerial, FM Aerial.
However, follow this link for a plot of the line between you and the transmitter:
Terrain between ( m a.g.l.) and (antenna m a.g.l.) - Optimising UK DTT Freeview and Radio aerial location
You are about 10m ASL and 13 miles from Rosneath and the transmitter antenna is 216m ASL. About 8miles from you is Dunrod Hill which is 298m ASL. If you click the link below the plot it will show a map with a line between you and the transmitter.
I'm not an aerial installer or expert in the propagation of RF signals, so I may stand to be corrected by the professionals, but I don't think you have any chance whatsoever of receiving from Rosneath at your location.
I think that you should consider Freesat. For terrestrial television you will have to go with the limited output of the Largs relay.

I myself dont think i,ll recieve the signal , it's cause the Largs is only Freeview Light.....wast of time.
I,ve had Sky for 13 years and lived in Kilmarnock and Ayr....all with great services but in wee Largs well its as you say Freesat or pay through the nose for Sky who have the fastest broadband...ahhhh!
I'll just need to buy a 82mt pole for mt aerial lol.
