Well I use both -

The Televes DAT45 for receiving Sandy Heath because it has to be a wideband antenna and I am 20 miles from the Transmitter and live in a bit of a dip.

The Blake DMX10A for receiving Crystal Palace because I am 37 miles from, and the 10A is an antenna specific for Group A - which is where DVB-T from C.Palace is now and will be after DSO

I suggest if you want a specific answer to your question, the Transmitter you are proposing to Receive from would be of use.

Also take a look at what size of aerials have been fitted to other houses in the road - ask yourself why would I need to do anything different?

With hindsight I would not have fitted a DAT45 here in Easternmost England. I think a good quality 18-element wideband would have been a better choice.

What transmittter is crucial. Much of Stoke uses Fenton which needs a Vertically-polarised group A aerial.

Fenton will be 2,000W/1,000W erp after switchover in September (cf 100W/50W currently) which is a 12 to 13dB increase.
