Um yes.... and polarised horizontally or vertically and some aerials are also
'tuned' to just pick up some frequencies (and thus cut out more
interference). I did have a nice link somewhere about the aerial types... but
googling will probably get the information quicker.
I tried a few different aerials and ended up with a simple maxview wideband
one with an amp, that picked up the best signal for me.
The ofcom site has a list of transmitters and frequencies:
There, crystal palace is horizontal and guildford is vertical.
