    About to rent a room with no TV ariel. A few questions:

    Do the amplified ariels actually make a difference?
    Is there a website where I can find out what the signal strength is like in a certain area?

    You can get a list of transmitters from the ITC. The list for London, which covers most of Herts is here.
    It is not possible to say with any certainty what the signal will be in a given area due to variations in height, local terrain, etc. Amplified aerials do work but they are no substitute for a decent outdoor or loft aerial if you can arrange that. An outdoor aerial will work indoors if you can find somewhere to put it. Where are you going to be living? If it's in Herts, I'm local so may know a bit about the conditions.
