FLlanddona (Isle of Anglesey, Wales) Full Freeview transmitter

Yes, I agree MikeP. However, when I remove the dist. amplifier and have direct feed from the antenna the strength will drop to around 74% but quality is then around 10% with an unwatchable picture. The 2 PSB mux's which are double the power are not giving me any problems whatsoever (strength about the same and quality around 80%). The weather obviously affects things and evenings worse, so I am beginning to wonder whether there are any underlying signals from Ireland which are affecting reception. I have an elderly lady who lives down the road that's completely lost picture from Com4 & 5 since the frequency change with com 6 appearing occasionally but her TV will show channel id and indicate a signal strength of around 60% for these muxs.

Since the 700Mhz clearance event on the 14th Nov 2018, I have had a large number of customers reporting problems in receiving Com 4, 5 and 6 including myself. I can report that signal strength in each case is always good but signal quality has deteriorated and is now very poor with frequent vision breakup. I am personally having problems with Com 6 where signal strength is consistently above 95%, however quality is always around 20%. I live in direct line of sight of the Llanddona transmitter and previous to the frequency changes these mux's were not giving me and other people any problems. Please can you tell me what else changed on the 14th of November?
