Hi there,

Has anyone had any luck getting UHF DVB-T/freeview HD reception in Aro Valley, Wellington?
Brothers moved into a flat there and we're deciding which way to go, uhf/sat.

Cheers.

Should be :)
My mate was living on Mortimer street and they had only UHF coverage :)




I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

Which street?

Aro valley has very steep sides and those on the floor and northern side are unlikely to be able to get reception from Kaukau,  (Or see the sun much in Winter :)

Cheers. His tv has the inbuilt tuner so we'd be daft not to try for it, just checking if anyone knows for sure it's a go or not in advance, otherwise it's a sat install job. Thanks!

Hi, Aro valley can be pretty fickle, all depends on where you are, some is covered some not. Only real way is to do a site check.

Thanks Cyril, yeah I think he's down near the flat of it, not up in the crack as such.
Will see what we can get and go from there. Cheers all.
