I won't even drive across the Humber bridge, such is my dislike of heights.  You have my every sympathy for not erecting your new TV aerial.

Before Christmas I found myself appointed as the local Silver Band's official photographer.  In order to photograph them without getting the back of the audience's heads in the shot, I have to climb a pair of step ladders to get a higher vantage point.  Even that gives me the collywobbles.

It's funny, whenever I hear if somebody fitting an aerial, I always think of Rod Hull, and the Emu popping up out of the chimney and knocking him off the roof!

I'm enjoying the high pressure, since our local TV transmissions were modified (part of the 5g rollout) I haven't been able to get my favourite channel BBC4 HD because they now transmit it from a low power transmitter instead of the one they used to use. High pressure seems to be be the most favourable condition for it to magically reappear.
I have bought a new wideband aerial which I did plan to put on the roof instead of our current loft aerial, however I then remembered Rod Hull and decided against the roof idea.  :crazy:

I wondered what became of BBC4HD.  We lost ours over 6 months ago.

Could this be a conspiracy to get everyone to sign up to Britbox?

We do, but I haven't.  Don't really see the need when my internet usually works fine as it is.

Websites usually work fine, downloads are fast, and streaming TV is no problem.  Why pay the extra for fibre?
