Brian T: If you click the link to R+T investigation, there appears to be no problems, so perhaps check your system.

Brian T: Although no faults been indicated by the Winter Hill transmitter there has been a posting by David Roberts (Colwyn Bay) about bad reception from same of the BBC HD channels on Mux C54 including possible reasons for, this seen by opening the undermentioned link.

If indeed your reception from this transmitter has been good over the last twelve months then I feel that this was with an element of luck, because at 56 miles away from the transmitter and with the signal from the TX passing over an expanse of water, variation in the level of signal received is not exactly uncommon, but though on this occasion its possibly dropped slightly under the threshold for reception level, the usual way of getting over the problem being to fit a mains powered variable booster (0 -15db or so) in line with the aerial feed into the TV.

Why is Craigkelly not appearing in the above list? It shows my most likely transmitters as Angus, Blackhill and Durris.

But Craigkelly is my nearest mast, at 25 miles, and it's the one that offers me the Edinburgh STV programme. And it does give me strong signals - although, perversely, the STV signal on rf24 is not as good as that from Durris.

As for Angus, well, that's a joke. Mind you, my aerial is pointing to Blackhill, so I can't expect to get a signal from Angus. This makes it all the more surprising that I get a good signal from Durris, 73 miles away on an almost perpendicular bearing. (NT621742)

Derek McLean: The predictor on this site rules out transmitters to which there is no line-of-sight, which would appear to be the case for Craigkelly (just):

I keep asking why my TV reception is so bad and I never find an answer. Could anyone please tell me what I need to do to get one?

Brian M. Leahy: OK - I found on one or two of your previous posts your postcode - which is whats really needed when asking about reception problems (you also posted similar questions on two different threads), and you seem to have an old LCD Panasonic TV.

You dont really say what the problem is, but it seems that channels go, or at least the subtitles do, and you keep retuning.

If you click on the link to Home to Mast plot, you'll see that your only about 20km from Oxford, and there doesn't seem to be anything in the way. The DigitalUK link confirms that Oxford should be excellent for you, and the aerial should be on a bearing of 28 degrees.

Check that you are actually tuned to the Oxford transmitter - its on RF Channel 53, so its possible the TV has picked something else. The reception guru's will tell you how to manually tune if you need to.

However, since both you and the neighbour are having a similar problem, there is another possibility, that your simply getting too much signal. Panasonic's are sensitive, and your only 20km away from the transmitter. If you got a big newish aerial, (and certainly if you have a booster), then you could just be getting too high a signal strength at certain times.
