Default field strength on wolfbane

Hi,

I was just checking on Wolfbane the field strength of Kilvey Hill tx
from Ilfracombe & it comes up with 22dBuv. What sort of gain would be
required to get this up to a more stable level? If that makes sense.

Don't believe anything you read on Wolfbane. You need a bucket load of
salt to go with it...

As Bill and Paul have said, it's nonsense.

Kilvey Hill is very unlikely to beam any signal southwards over the Bristol
Channel, a) because there's no need to, and b) if it did it might cause
problems for some Caradon Hill viewers.

Your best bets for DTT are Presely, Carmel, or Wenvoe.

Bugger. I've just ordered a group A aerial from CPC. Perhaps I
should return it still packed & exchange it for a wideband one.
