I have an external aerial on the gable of my house, Croft road, Lochcarron, IV548YA.
Our signal is perfect during the day but come evening especially on a clear night the signal breaks up and disappears completely. Is there a signal reduction from the mast at attadale in the evening? Or is there something we should be doing at our end . Thanks in advance

Andrew Mackenzie :
Please would you check what the signal strengths are as reported by your TV set. Would you also provide a full post code so we can check what the predicted signal reception conditions are at your location. That will also let us check for any hills, etc between you and the transmitter in use.
