That is so true....I point about south east towards Sudbury, and fither
than sudbury...lies Holland and Belgium, and in cold dry weather,
channel 5 (low power anyway) goes all stripey, with signals coming fom
Le Continent ....nothing to be done, because they stand behind the
signal I want :-(
Except go freeview.digital, which may happen soon, and hope teh S/N
ratio is adequate.
No, I can't get Sandy Heath at all. Well I CAN but at much lower signal
strength, and channel 5 doesn't work on sandy heath anyway. Cambridge
has a repeater at Madingley for it, but that is useless to most of the
sandy heath service area. Sudbury is far closer to me. AND its on a
hill, and so am I..just over the watershed between the Ouse river and
the Orwell/stour river systems on the Stour side.
FM os not so good - Tacolneston is my best bet it seems, and that is a
fair old way. Neverthjeless I can get most of what I want - all the BEEB
and local radio from there and classic FM.
Err, how many channels do you want to watch at one time? Not that I am
championing the quality of current TV, you understand, but Freeview gives me
perfect Channel 5, *occasional* programs I actually want to watch on BBC3,
BBC4, ITV2 (plus 24hr news and parliament when/if you want it). Were I
paying monthly I would probably object, but a one off payment of less than
the licence fee seems reasonable for the S/N ratio!
