Freeview Frequencies

Anyone know where the free view frequencies are located in the lower uhf band or do they run completely separate to uhf???
Any help would be most helpful!

Colin

You don't say where you're from or what transmitter you are currently picking up, but to answer your other question, all freeview transmitter operate in the same UHF band as analogue transmitters.

Sorry for not elaborating. Going for the north of Ireland which transmitters have freeview? Also if I was going for Wales which transmitters have Freeview capabillity?

In Northern Ireland Divis, Brougher Mountain and Limavady all broadcast DTT, while from Wales Presely and Blawenplyf have DTT outlets.

Bear in mind that you have to be closer to a transmitter for DTT to work in fringe areas than you usually would be for an analogue signal.

Thanks.

Do they have a designated channel number on which to come in on like 55 or something like that? Then the box sorts them.

Yes. For example, the six "multiplexes" from Brougher Mountain are assigned as follows..

Mux 1 (BBC) - Ch 30
Mux 2 (ITV/CH4) - Ch 34
Mux A (Ch5/SDN) - Ch 23
Mux B (BBC) - Ch 26
Mux C (Sky/CCI) - Ch 29
Mux D (CCI) - Ch 33

But beware, there is no absolute way of telling if you can receive them through a normal analogue TV set. Only a DTT box/decoder or IDTV can do that.

Or a spectrum analyser is nice. A good one is only the price of a cheap new car.

let me guess :

1) no hope
2) little hope
3) the third one doesn't matter

I know that people even at sea level in Rosslare can pick up Welsh TV because near Kellys Hotel there are several houses with aerials pointing out to the east, there is a sticky on this topic (reception of Welsh signals in Ireland) here...

http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showt...p?t=2055658286

If you live in Waterford it may be possible with a good aerial, where exactly in Waterford do you live? No need to give your exact address but be reasonably precise. Do any of your neighbours have aerials pointing E or SE, in the direction of Kilmore Quay/Carnsore Point?

Hi all

Not sure if im posting this in the right place apologies if im not ... but i was wondering if anyone could help me... i have a Humax hdci 2000t trial box hooked up to my roof aerial and can receive most of the UK Freeview channels. Given my location (Dundalk), i assume im getting these channels from the Divis transmitter. However im not able to pick up anything broadcasting off mux c on ch48. Is there anything i can do to get the channels on mux c???
