Screenlogo TV Rijnmond I picked up the at this moment cheap outside DVB-T antenna from KPN which didn't even have a KPN logo, just Funke. It is the Funke DSC310. It came with 10 meter antenna cable and mounting materials. I went to Radio Centrum, the local electronics shop and picked up a K├Ânig DVB-T power inserter. The mounting materials for the Funke antenna include a clamp for a pipe so I used a broomstick to raise the antenna out the window.

The results were spectacular. Depending on antenna orientation (the DSC310 is directional) I received 19 to 22 transmitters with in total 208 to 234 services (with a lot of duplicate Digitenne services). Details in the DVB-T reception log for 10 June 2010.

Screenlogo TV West Notable new services: Digitenne multiplex 1 Zuid-Holland Zuid with TV Rijnmond and Digitenne multiplex 1 Zuid-Holland Noord with TV west.

Update 2010-06-13: I just noticed browsing those results with some more time and energy available that I also had WDR Mux 2 Aachen at 602 MHz in one direction, which is new for the home location. The reason I did not notice before is that my script to generate the logbook did not see that frequency as 'new' because I have seen it in Limburg, the southern part of the Netherlands.

According to DVB-T Frequenties - Wikipedia Nederland the 602 MHz transmitter is the one at Aachen-Stolberg which is 167 kilometer distance. A new DX record!

Distance calculations using Calculate distance, bearing and more between Latitude/Longitude points and normal reach calculations using VHF/UHF TV Line of Sight Calculator. The line of sight calculator shows me both this distance and the 112 kilometer to Sender Wesel are above the normal reach of those transmitters.
