My post code is PO9 2FX and we and many friends have lost several channels on the new 55 & 56. Freeview are being evasive. They admit to lots of complaints. We moved into a new house 2 years ago and I paid to have a wide band log periodic fitted. I have checked all my cables are short and low loss coax. I have tried a 16dB gain amplifier. Using the power monitor on my Panasonic TV I have found good signal strength up to 28 I get 10, to 37 I get 6 and nothing on 55 or 56 without the amplifier. With the amplifier I get a small signal on 55 and even smaller on 56 but no signal quality on either. Looking at the quoted power transmission there is considerably less power on 55 & 56 and I believe this is the cause of the problem. I have contacted the antenna supplier who confirmed he has had lots of complaints and he agrees it is power. He also said that he believes the power is reduced because 55 & 56 are in the Midhurst transmitted frequencies and the power was reduced to avoid interference with Midhurst. How many people are being conned to but a new aerial ?
