I have been experiencing major signal issues for several weeks on the BBC channels. I tried phoning 0345 650 5050 to report this, but it just disconnects me. Sometime ago the transmitter engineers came out and fixed it in my loft. Can I please have a contact phone number for the transmitter service. Thank you.

Irene Lindsay: Transmitter engineers don't fix faults with aerials in people's homes, they only work on the transmitter network. The people who carried out the work in your loft were probably working for Restore TV, who are the organisation set up and funded by the mobile networks to resolve problems caused by the 800MHz and more recent 700MHz clearances and who also supply free filters to block interference from the 4G and 5G signals now using those frequency bands. The phone number you mentioned is the Freeview retune advice line which was setup to assist people who list signal when the frequency clearance changes took place. They would not be able to send out anyone to fix any other fault with your aerial system.
If the fault has been ongoing for a long time and you have checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV you would be advised to contact a local aerial installer.
