    Hi

    That's the key, you must be pointing at Mendip as there are no digital signals from the Bath relay. The relay is needed because most parts of Bath would have real trouble getting a decent signal from Mendip (due to the valley) so it depends on where you are, and you would need a decent aerial.

    Regards

    Phil

    SWMBO lives in Norton St Philip, uses Mendip presumably. Best freeview reception I've ever seen. The cottage is 16th century and I think the aerial is original:)
    I really struggle in Swindon using Oxford.
