I live on the Glasgow airport flight path and when a plane lands I lose signal quality, so that I have no picture for two or four seconds. Seems to only happen on BBCB transmissions. Any ideas what I can do?

Chris I now seem to have BBCB on 530.005 MHz, this was previously 626.000 MHz. Still have the same issue. Not able to reposition aerial. Any thoughts as to why?

Hi Chris, I've checked alignment and it is same as others in the street , approx 106, it could be 103, would that have an influence? Magnetic of course.

The runway is approx. 230-240 degrees, and sorry for any confusion but the signal disappears when the aircraft are overhead or approaching my house or maybe just past. They approach from approx. 50 to 60 degrees. Is it possible that the vortex or vortices could cause an issue? Thanks for all your help so far.

An update. I have retuned and all channels are from Blackhill now. Haven't spoken to my neighbours yet. The only problem seems to be 626MHz which when a plane goes over during landing, not so bad with takeoffs, the signal strength remains at 99% but the signal quality drops to 0%. With the other mux/ channels signal quality either doesn't drop or only drops a little, but picture remains good. Of course I can watch these channels, HD on 626, on standard definition but would rather have HD, if we can solve this. Cheers

Hi Chris, one of my neighbours has the same issue, the other is still on holiday.

Sorry I seem to have lost a post. It said thanks Chris. The type of aerial is similar to labgear 10 element professional high gain, small differences but 10 elements. I think I will try my local aerial engineer and see if he can fix it knowing what we've discovered without trial and error. If not I can probably live with Standard Definition on these channels. Many thanks for your help in raising my understanding and good luck. Keep up the good work.
Cheers
