Mendip (Somerset, England) Full Freeview transmitter

Just had a new wideband roof top aerial fitted with new cable run to replace my old group C/D contract aerial. Reception is much better but I still get the occasional glitch/freeze on the weaker COM muxes. Do you think the power increase due in 2012 will clear this issue up?

PS. I live in BS35 near the Severn Estuary so this is a weaker signal area for Mendip, with Wenvoe coming in strong even on my loft aerial! (But I'm not Welsh!)

Many thanks for the reply Brian.

The aerial installer made sure that the set scanned Mendip only by unplugging the aerial lead until the scan reached CH50. Also NIT=West Mendip too.

I notice that a lot of aerials in the neighbourhood have mast head amps and my old group aerial had (but I had no power supply for it). With this and the rust on the aerial/condition of the old lossy cable I was happy to have a new aerial installed.

That is great news about the power increase and rather than spend more money & introduce something that may only be required for a while, I'll hang on until 2012 then.
