There's little that can be done until the regulator and RTE work out a different plan for DTT frequencies in the southeast.
Sorry that is completely incorrect.
The problems in Wexford are down to people not making the choice between whether they want Irish or UK channels.
Anyone using a high gain aerial pointing at Wales is going to have problems and experience RTE appearing and disappearing because Mt Leinster is only coming in the back of the aerial during non lift conditions. That these aerials positioned for Wales with added masthead amps turned up full whack to pull in far awy signals rather than local Mt Leinster is the ROOT of the problem.
What is with people fascination of using high gain aerials pointing away from Mt Leinster and thinking its possible. Get a Sat dish if you want the UK channels like the rest of the country.
The aerial installers are being driven demented down in Wexford by people who want it all. It simply willl NOT work.
Ch 45 is allocated to Ireland for PSB Mux 1 for Mt Leinster, end of. Make a choice. Want Saorview ? Turn your aerial around and turn the fecking gain down on the masthead amp. Feck sake. It wouldnt be co channel if people wherent do things to make it so.
I am on the coast and use an indoor aerial for Mt Leinster (as well as outdoor yagi) with no problems.
