Hi

I live in Worcester WR2 4PB area (18 element on roof at Malvern TX) and have noticed that Mux A (Ch 38 etc) has been breaking down (blocking) over the last 3-4 days. I re-tune regularly.

The other Muxs appear ok?

Appreciate any thoughts?

Regards

Glenn

WR2 4PB, looking at Malvern Tx.

Hi

Last night (Thursday at 2100 ish), heavy rain started and the PSB3 HD set all dropped out, although all SD stations continued ok.

Is this a common feature that HD PSB's appear more likely to fail during rain than SD bands?

I've read that Malvern's PSB3 has not been the most reliable - but I wonder if anyone actually believes viewers anymore when they report failures?

Also, could you tell me how page 101/1 can be accessed - as suggested at the end of BBC HD news progs?

Hope you can help

Regards

Glenn

WR2 4PB, looking at Malvern Tx.

Hi

Ref. your reply of 4th Nov suggesting that rain was getting into the aerial downlead.

Surely rain getting into an arial cable would affect all PSBs signals the same? But in this case ONLY the HD PSB went down, the other SD PSBs were working fine?

And why would the HD PSB signal return 10mins after the rain stopped - wouldn't the cable be shorted until it dried out (ie a long time interval)?

Hope you can explain further.

Regards

From your sites articles, Im aware that as I live in Worcester (@ WR2 4PB) and receive signals from the Malvern TX, that Im likely to suffer 4G interference in the future. (6 masts within 1km.)

If I lose one or more MUX due to this problem will the free filter, once fitted, enable all MUX channels to be received?

Also, will the insertion loss of these filters be negligible or will they reduce the already weak signal strength.

Thanks for any info.

Regards

Glenn
