[access-uk] Re: Sky TV Freesat

Hi,

Also another factor in this is the aerial in your house - we had to change our 
aerial before we got good reception.  I did get some channels, but most were 
unwatchable until we upgraded the aerial.  The postcode checker on the site 
won't necessarily tell you if you need a new aerial.

Andrew.

Hi Andy,

Mine cost around £100.  However, as we are in a suspect
area, I did make it clear that if it didn't work, I wouldn't
pay.

Personally, I'd call a local aerial installer and ask for a
quote.  They may tell you outright that it won't work where
you are.  If not, then it's their loss if they come to fit
it, and it doesn't work.

George.

Hi again George.

Black on black?  How did I manage to do that?  My message
appeared okay when I sent it and when it arrived to the
list.  I didn't realise that I was sending messages as html.
I've checked my settings and it says that I am using Plain
Text.  Perhaps this would account to being unable to get
onto the BBC Radio 2 Page.  I've been trying for days now
and all I get on Internet Explorer is a black screen.

Regarding the question., how much did you pay for your new
Ariel George?  As this would have to be taken into account.
I can fit it myself, though Pauline is not happy about me
being up on the roof.  Neither am I by the way, you should
see me trying to brush the chimney.  Knees trembling and
holding on tight. hahaha.

Andy.
