Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Pontop Pike transmitter area
dave bambrough: Thanks for the update on the situation, however as nothing is seen listed on the engineering notice board with regards to any problem existing with Bellingham or even the Pontop Pike transmitters, then rather than searching about for a fault that "might" not exist it would be advisable to make a check with a neighbour or whoever to determine if the problem is only confined to your own installation, or maybe not as the case may be!
If it is, then are you using any form of booster? because if you are then try bypassing it by connecting the aerial straight into the TV.

Alistair: Ridsdale is covered by the Caldbeck transmitter located @ 46 miles on a bearing of 235 degrees, albeit with the signal path from that station suffering from a obstruction (minor?) at just under 1mile prior to the village.
A quick check made on the rooftops of properties located in main street of the village showing number of aerials facing towards the Caldbeck transmitter, with only a few facing towards Chatton @ 29 miles / 25 degrees, the signal path from the latter suffering from multiple obstructions from around 9 miles or so.
The channels used by the Caldbeck transmitter being as follows:
BBC1 (C25) - ITV (C28) - Main HD service (C30) - SDN / ITV3 etc (C23) - Pick TV etc (C26) - 4Music etc (C29) - COM7 HD / (C32)
