@ Mike P.

Signal is ok now. The problems started to happen a few days before the hot weather with other channels not affected.

When I moved to Southwater in 2015 the TV reception was very flaky and got worse when it rained but eventually I got a wideband aerial installed which improved things a lot but it was still at times flaky and would be bad when it rained. When the first phase of the 700Mhz happened and I retuned I instantly noticed an improvement for the channels and when it rained the reception did not drop for the muxes that had moved over to the new channels. The channels that remained on the 700Mhz range though were still affected with bad weather. Now that the remaining channels have been moved out of the 700Mhz range all my channels work absolutely fine in bad weather. Not sure what was causing the reception to drop in bad weather but a result for me!

That is good to know and I have read (not sure if true) that when trees get wet then this can affect the signal. Now when I observe the signal quality and strength it holds strong when there is rain where as before you would gradually see it degrade to the point of no signal coming through.

Any ideas as to why I am not able to receive any programs on channel 33 but all others are fine?

@Chris.SE

So even if the reduced power is specified for BBC A mux would that affect ARQ B?
