Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
Paul Convery: With the aerial connected to the digibox, try a manual tune on UHF channel 60 (your only MUX at the moment, with BBC1 & BBC2 etc).
If your digibox has signal strength and signal quality indicators, do either register anything?
Some older digiboxes don't like frequency offsets (your BBCA MUX is 60-), so you may see nothing at all on either indicator if that's the case.
Can you borrow a different digibox to try?
