DBrierley Hill (Dudley, England) Full Freeview transmitter

MikeP: Hi Mike, my info. says 5K to Brierley Hill and 21K to Kidderminster.
I am sorry to say that I followed the official advise and have done auto and manual retunes on both recievers.
I appear to be getting "a clock full" on almost all channels. I can live without HD so I can get by for now.
I might try swinging the antenna further west to drop the levels a bit so that Kidderminster drops more onto the edge of the lobe so reducing the input relative to Brierley Hill.

I have also had big problems with reception of all BBC and HD from Brierley Hill site.
Both my television and digital recorder show the same faults. Eventually after much realignment of the aerial, I have got the SD BBC channels back, but not the HD channels.
Although Channel group 32 (BBC A mux) showed a good signal the information seemed to be corrupt.
Channel group 35 (BBC B mux) now shows a good level of signal but the recievers both indicate the quality to be bad and no HD channels are recognised.
I am located at Rowley Regis and in line of site of Brierly Hill transmitter, however, I have found that Kidderminster is within a few degrees of Brierley Hill from my location and according to the digital uk coverage checker a "retune event" occoured on the 31st October. I can only assume that this has caused my problems.
The information I have is that both sites use the same Channels for the same programmes.
