Aim/point to Freeview UK & Saorview (Ireland)Transmission towers easily.
Use either a satellite map or compass!

Freeview Aim will list all stations within 120 miles of your current geographical position as indicated by your iPhone/iPad.
All UK (including Northern Ireland, Shetlands, the Channel Islands etc.) and Republic of Ireland transmitters (Saorview) are included. A few Saorview repeaters may not be included due to lack of information.

With Freeview Aim you can view the position of the transmission towers in relationship to you. This can be used to help adjust your antenna for local reception, or even the far far away tower that you have been trying to "DX" for quite a while. Whether you are on your roof or turning your rotor from your living room, Freeview Aim can help you.
