Mike Potter: Refer to:

Digital UK - Planned Engineering Works

Quite a few digital relay transmitters, including Langholm, are subject to "service shutdowns" over this week.

Mike Potter: ITV signals back. However very weak and result in frozen image which is unviewable.

Has the work now finished or is this a work in progress with the signal to resume normal viewing soon.

This is a disaster.

What is going on? Digital UK can tell me nothing.

Mike Potter: If you have your aerial is directed to the Langholm transmitter, then try manually tuning to UHF channel 57 for BBC.
