During the last week I have experienced issues with Freeview channels dropping in batches. Last week intermittent problems with Frequency CH 54 and 56 during the evening, the signal was fine the following day. The last two evenings I have had the same problem but with Frequency CH 48 and CH 49, the signal starts to break up then totally goes down, this is happening at just after 19.30. Today the channels 48 and 49 came back on full signal at approximately 11.15am. Can you please give me an indication as to what is causing this issue, all other areas eg. Arial, 4G, speaking to Freeview have been covered. This is happening in B10 7RT area.

MikeB: When CH 49 is working I have full signal quality ie 10/10, signal strength is fluctuating between 8.5 to 9 out of 10 on frequency 698.00MHz , CH 48 is full signal quality 10/10, signal strength is 9/10, on 690 MHz. All Freeview channels are fine all day but this problem seems to start between 6PM and 7.15PM.

MikeB: Sorry MikeB my last message seems to have gone through to yourself more than once and thank you for your reply earlier today.

As an addition to my previous mail, at 6.15PM this evening again Frequency CH54 went down and returned after a few minutes albeit now on low signal quality with signal strength 5 on 738.00MHz. As soon as CH 54 returned CH48 and 49 have dropped so I have no TV picture for BBC1 etc again! CH 49 is showing no signal quality and about 2.5 signal strength on 698.00 MHz, CH 48 is the same.. I do have HD TV and all HD channels are fine so if there was an aerial problem surely those channels would be affected and when checking the signal strength on station 102 ITV HD on CH58 that signal has also stayed low since it dropped earlier but picture is fine. I cannot see what is causing this problem of No Signal at the same time every day, the weather has not changesd within the last couple of hours, there is no outside disturbances, it is countryside so no city disruption and this issue has only just started within the last week?
