Hi, Do you know if the signal strength is going to be increased for C55 (LS)? Although I am in a relatively poor reception area for the Sheffield Transmitter it is generally satisfactory and I prefer it over Belmont due to the more relevant local news. Currently the strength and quality of my C55 reception is very poor and unwatchable. Sheffield Live TV stores itself on Ch800 rather than Ch8 and rarely gets beyond a frozen pixelated picture.

Andy: No, it's not. Also note that the radiation pattern isn't as great as the other channels -- it's a leaf shape in the direction of the city centre.

As you will probably know, a wideband aerial may well be required, but that may have already been fitted for Channel 5 analogue or digital.
