    Aerial direction?

    Digital ITV and CH4 channels drift off station and the TV aerial appears to be out of line with the neighbours'.

    Where can I find out the correct alignment for the aerials in my postcode area? Searched google but didn't bring anything up.

    Just face it the same direction as the rest of the house but try to avoid aiming at big trees and houses.

    You will have to do a bit of working out yourself based on your local transmitter and your position to it! It's not like sly where everybodys pointing at the same place.
