Ditto and ditto ;-)

We are a bit in the shadow of the Hogs Back so we can only just see
the Guildford transmitter.  I had the aerial redone recently and
decided to go for Crystal Palace.  For us the signal is better than
Guildford, though I can see some channels from Guildford too.

Our old aerial (which was pointing at Wonersh) used to work (just
about) with both Guildford and Crystal Palace.  Well enough for me to
work out that this digital TV thing was going to work and I should
spend some cash on getting the aerial redone.
