having been brought up in Liverpool in the 60s with no football match having less than 44 players, at the start, due to horrible ghosting I was more than pleased when the same old aerial in my mother's house produced perfect Freeview pictures post Granada switchover.
So it was with great anticipation that I looked forward to the switchover in Chemsford (CM2) and wasn't disappointed until..
I didn't figure out why I lost channels when Tacleston switched, I only know now through this august website.

I do feel as though I've been short changed despite also having Sky etc downstairs I do rely on Freeview around the rest of the house and for PIP on my main TV.
I feel sorry for those who totally depend on Freeview, none of my equipment is older than May 2011, seems like poor planing and communications from the switchover team to me.

OK, since Q3 last year in CM2 I lost ITV 4, Film 4 etc and I know it's not coming back til June 2012 but.. I noticed Sky News breaking up recently, re-scans fail to find the channel so it's gone now, nothing has changed on my end all the equipment is post May 2011.

Has there been anther dip in power from Sudbury at all?

Thanks for the tips Dave, I went old school and looked up, the aerial has snapped of the mast and is only hanginging on by the cable..It not a particularly old aerial, probably 5 years max, I guess the recent winds have done for it.

What a letdown..didn't realise I wouldn't be getting only BBC 3 HD from Sudbury glad to have the new channels via Sky, I learnt to always expect disappoint first from Freeview in Chelmsford, where I live Sudbury is the only option.
