    This site is awesome, it shows you every tower, who it's owned by, it's elevation, the date it was built etc. And then you can search for antennas and it will show you who the antenna serves and tons of detailed information! Kind of fun, but also a good way to figure out why your coverage is or isn't poor.

    Doesn't work for me, I keep getting "technical errors." I will definitely bookmark it and check it out later to see if it starts working, could be very useful.

    Yeah, that's the way it is for me too. Everything is going very slow and then timing out on the site. :(

    That's incredibly odd, it's working just fine for me. Give it a few minutes and then try it again. Well sorry guys, it isn't working right now I guess. It's typical, I post a link and it doesn't work when it needs to. Try again later it was just working I can't expect it would be down for too long. It's a great site though trust me.

    I just checked it out. Pretty cool, but I don't think I'll ever check it again.

    I'm using Safari 4 and it took several minutes for EACH page to load...

    After entering my address it never came back. I am on IE8.

    However, I hope it starts working better because this is something I have always wanted to lookup.

    Thanks

    Just wanted to let everyone know that the website is back up (at least for me) and is running faster than ever! Go give it a look now. I'm using it RIGHT now, I don't know what browsers you all are on....

    Edinburgh? I got pretty good reception all day when I visited prospectively.
    I'm with O2 and have the dreaded iPhone with its horrible reception...

    Call into an O2 store and they have this kind of information (more than given online to O2 customers) on their computers if you want to check local coverage/expected dates for upgrades/petitions to upgrade etc.

    That website only gives a piece of the information that antennasearch gives you.
