Channels used may be changed in 2013
Exact method of tuning the TV, Set-box or PC/Laptop depends on the product. Read the manual.
Unlike Analogue TV, many Stations share one frequency or Channel that is called a “Multiplex”.
Usually there is Manual and Scan.
Manual: One channel or Frequency
Scan: One or all TV bands
The entry for manual scan can be frequency or Channel. You may need to add 000 at the end of a frequency.
Table of Channels and Frequencies in Ireland and UK for Digital Television
Channels above 59 will not be used for TV after the ASO.
Channels in Italics might be auctioned if it’s decided Pay TV will never launch.
Outdoor and Attic UHF Aerials
Outdoor aerials can be in the attic or outdoors. See UHF aerials on Techtir. All Digital Terrestrial is on UHF. There is not any such thing as a Digital Aerial. That’s just Marketing. See RTE NL PDF booklet. (right click and download)
Really all that counts (in order) in comparing UHF aerials
- Length of aerial overall. Longer is better. (unless it’s a grid array).
- Size of rear reflector. Bigger is better
- How many “directors” there are. they can be flat strips, rods — pairs of > and < or X shapes.
The Reflector at rear, driven element (dipole, the bit coax connects to)
and directors is the number of Elements. Not the entire number of
spikes or rods as some manufacturers dishonestly count.
They must be chosen for correct group.
Yagi not recommended for Group W (Wideband). Use a Grid.
