For a few days after the second switchover the BBC channels were working OK, then they became intermittent and now they are not received at all in Seaford. As they worked at first, why doen't they work now?

Sunday evening the BBC channels were back again in Seaford - just that evening, so perhaps it is weather-dependent.

Oddly enough I get good reception of channels 48 and 53 (about 75% on the rather arbitrary signal level on my TV) with good to very good signal quality. The signal strength shown on channel 51 is absolutely zero most of the time.

If you are having difficulties trying to retune, be aware that Newhaven digital doesn't start until 9 am on 30th May. The Newhaven Transmitter page doesn't tell you that, although the information appears with the Heathfield information elsewhere.

Earlier this morning, about 6:30 there was a very good signal on channel 50 - now at 8:12 nothing. Transmitter fault?

... and at8:30 channel 50 is back again. What chaos it must have caused for people who returned while 50 was off.

I live in an area with strong reception and have a new outdoor aerial. Almost daily there are occasions when watching Freeview when the sound ceases for a fraction of a second. I suspect that the picture also freezes, but the pause is so brief that it is harder to see when that happens. The fault shows on all of our Freeview receivers. There is nothing locally which I would expect to get in the way of the signal - but possibly aircraft or helicopters.

My thanks to Dave Lindsay for that suggestion, which I will try.

The text said " Spacing stations 9kHz also means that the there was a limit to the quality of sound, as human hearing ranges up to 2kHz".

Surely 20kHz ?
