I live in Blenheim and am going to try to get Freeview HD from one of the wellington sites (KauKau)
One of the signal coverage maps (http://www.freeviewnz.tv/images/uploads/pdfs/Kaukau_Standalone_Freeview.pdf) it shows arapawa Island as getting good signal strength.
i live approx 28km SSW from there and have a direct line of sight to roughly where the tower should be (been on the roof with my compass!)
Am I LIKELY to be able to pick up a signal considering the distance required with this:
We used to receive prime from a wellington site via UHF with the standard little UHF aerial you see on almost every house. And when my friend brought a signal meter we could pick up that there was a signal coming from the Kaukau area with this standard aerial, but it was only just that there was something there - nothing more.
This shows my house and the site
What's everyone's thoughts?
