    Found this and thought it could be useful when out and about
    http://www.sitefinder.ofcom.org.uk/search

    It gives mobile phone station locations and could be useful as it give you the direction from your location.
    hope you find this useful:thumb:

    I have posted this link before and got shot down.

    However please note this isn't a wifi finder but a cellphone mast finder.

    Hi Karl
    I obviously miss-understood the the info on the website. However, it does give info on the direction of the mast from your location and to enable the use of a directional aerial.

    The site I mention is not a coverage indicator but a map of where one might find the antenna tower relative to the location typed into the dialog box. This will give those with the benefit of directional aerials for their equipment the ability to choose which tower they might choose in order to get the best signal.
