I am receiving freeview at Matarangi beach on the Coromandel Pennisula. Would this transmission most likely be from the Sky Tower, or Waiatarua, or eleswhere? I presume that horizontal polarity means my receiving antenna reflectors should also be horizontal, and conversely for vertical polarity. Currently, my antenna is horizontal, and I receive TV1,2, etc good, but TV3, C4 can drop out a fair bit sometimes - this may be a clue as to where I'm receiving from.
Cheers for the info guys. I want to improve the TV3, C4 transmission a little as it drops out a bit. The TVNZ mux seems OK. I've purchased a Kingray UHF only masthead amp (MHU34FSPS) that I'll install this labour weekend. Hopefully it will improve the Mediaworks mux.
