  8. When ever you move the boat (and therefore the telly) you need to point the aerial to the best transmitter and in the correct polarization (normally horizontal for main transmitters but sometimes vertical for relays) then retune the telly. Even moving half a mile can mean you need a retune. To find the location of the transmitter I use an app on my phone called UK Aerial Alignment. As all above have said clean connections are a must.
  9. Ok folks, we're going to have to guess. My guess is "I put the battery in the wrong way round".
  10. Well that doesn't clear it up for me. Announcing something isn't the same as actually doing something. Where does the CRT "sponsorship" fit into the funding by the WYCA?
  11. It's not plain to me. Was it WYCA (who are doing the announcing) or CRT (who are doing the sponsoring) ? What does sponsoring mean in this case? If I sponsor someone doing a local 10k for a fiver it doesn't mean I'm paying for the whole breast cancer cure research programme.
  12. The article doesn't make clear who is funding this but AdE hasn't quoted the whole thing and missed out this bit: Funding for the project - which also includes a three kilometre stretch of towpath between Silsden and Kildwick - was announced by WYCA way back in 2020 and it was revealed in March 2021 that work would begin that Autumn.
  13. I think North West cover the Leeds & Liverpool all the way to Leeds. Stand to be corrected if I'm wrong.
  14. I believe the thinking nowadays is that trees are not good for embankments, the roots de-stabalise them apparently. Network Rail certainly feel that way now.
  15. We were going to do the Basingstoke but we were too late in the season (July) and they had run out of water and had closed till the winter. So get there in the spring time. We intend to go back sometime. The Wey was lovely.
