Mendip (Somerset, England) Full Freeview transmitter

Aerial replaced last year for digital freeview switchover. It is on a 2.5 metre pole on the gable end of 2 story house. The installer positioned it for Mendip transmitter, BBC West and ITV West. For the last 2 weeks we have had problems receiving stations on Channel 61 and 56, i.e. BBC and Sky News. The signal strength hovers on 3 to 4 with the quality mainly on 1. We can get a more stable signal from the South or South West transmitters but obviously they are not for our specific region.

Have tried switching off all mains electrical equipment in turn but no change. Today the TV's are coming up with no signal. All other channels are brilliant and stable, quality 10 and signal strength 6 or 7.

We use Panasonic Plasma Freeview TV's with a distribution amplifier in the loft. Any ideas please, its driving my wife and I nuts!!!! Thanks.

Mike Dimmick: Mike thanks for the advice. Was going to try your suggestion today but late yesterday afternoon the problem channels seemed to resolve themselves.
