Charles Blundell: The Beaminster transmitter changed frequencies yesterday (according to the post above yours the work was completed at 11:30am) and you will therefore need to retune. If you are missing any channels which you previously received (or have poor signal strength) after retuning then you should contact the Freeview Advice Line (see link below) who can arrange for a replacement wideband aerial to be fitted free of charge if you don't have satellite or cable.
