Default Re: 405-Line VHF Aerials 2013 to the present day.

One of the TV's upstairs at what was my Grans would sort of work on digital with just the aerial lead connected and going nowhere (Bushfield Rd. Crewkerne, receiving Mendip) and in another room a loop antenna fixed to an old Fidelity CTV could receive digital before switchover.
I also remember going to an engineering training place on the Granby in Weymouth/Chickerell and whilst waiting to be picked up watching TV on an Amstrad TV/VCR with no aerial socket! (it had broken off), I know that the Weymouth transmitter in Wyke is very strong there.

We used the Wyke transmitter here on the east side of Charmouth for a while until they put in a repeater on Stonebarrow hill. We had a problem with it though, at certain times of the day BBC2 would fade out for a while, we came to the conclusion that it was 'tidal fading' at certain tide heights you would get an anti phase signal reflected off the sea.
