I just found a new iPad app called Antenna Mate. It costs $5 but it tells you where the Tv stations are in the area. How far, signal strength, antenna height, frequencies for fine tuning and more importantly the signal orientation. Well worth the purchase price.

If you go to the ACMA web site herehttp://www.acma.gov.au/WEB/STANDARD..PC/pc=PC_90056

all that information can be downloaded free as Exel spread sheets... either on a state by state basis or nationwide.

You are correct that the info is free but to have it all collated and an active arrow showing the direction to point the antanna is much easier.

Yes its a really good app. I've used it several times for aligning antennas. The alternative is to go inside and rotate until you get best signal - almost impossible to do single handedly. In our region we are surrounded by antennas about 70 to 100 km away so signal strength is very low anyway.
