Hi Torgeir,
It is a building with a roof antenna and a distribution amplifier. I 
checked the orientation of the aerial, with a compass && OS map, it 
points straight to Crystal Palace. (I'm in NW6, aerial orientation is 
154 degrees). I can also confirm that each multiplex matches the 
description found on http://www.ukfree.tv/txdetail.php?a=TQ339712

Maybe there is something quirky with the Freecom DVB-T USB stick? I must 
also point out that I am using an old version of scandvb that comes from 
the Fedora Core 4 Extras repository. I haven't managed to build the new 
versions from mercurial.
This is getting interesting...
