No TV signal for nearly 16 hours now...have tried retuning the TV to no avail. Arrochar transmitter in full view and no engineers in attendance. Have been advised by ITV that the problem is due to cloud but why are we getting limited access to BBC? G83 7AH. Please advise asap.

Carol Illingworth: I've observed that the Arrochar transmitter gets its feed from the one at Ardentinny, which is 13 miles away and broadcasts at only 14W. Therefore it's not beyond the realm of possibility that reception might be hampered by the weather.
