TV Reception Surveys

Looking for a TV Reception Survey?

As part of UK planning law, larger proposed building developments, wind turbines and large structures often require a survey to support a planning application.

Desktop TV Reception Survey

SCS Technologies Ltd is able to undertake a detailed pre-visit desktop study, impact predictions, and likely effects to TV reception with the erection of the new structure.

This report would contain detailed maps indicating possible areas of interference; details of the broadcast services available to those areas based on information available from trade websites; and detailed technical advice on suitable mitigation measures.

Pre-construction television reception surveys

SCS Technologies Ltd is fully equipped, technically competent and fully insured to undertake your Pre-construction TV reception Survey; we have our own vehicle equipped with a 10 meter telescopic mast, GPS and spectrum analyser.

A site survey is undertaken (measurement of existing TV signals), to ascertain the following elements;

  • Current signal levels from a number of test points;
  • Full detailed documentation showing predicted affected areas overlaid onto a map;
  • Photos showing local conditions and reception techniques;
  • Suitable mitigation measures.

The Television and Radio Reception Mitigation Plan would contain detailed maps indicating possible areas of interference; details of the broadcast services available to those areas based on what is being received at the test locations, and detailed technical advice on suitable mitigation measures.

Post-construction television reception surveys

It is sometimes a requirement to undertake a TV reception survey after a building has been constructed, extended, a wind turbine or windfarm installed.

The post construction survey is undertaken using the same techniques as the Pre-construction survey analysing reception signals and advising of any mitigating measures.
