Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Mendip transmitter area
Belynda Giles: If these house numbers are within one of the blocks of flats which are all fed by a communal aerial system then the answer must be a fault with that system. The fault could be that power has been lost to the amplifier or that the amplifier or its power supply has become defective. Either way, you need to contact the party responsible for the system so that they can get it put right.

Belynda Giles: Looking at the situation from another angle. As Mendip, the station indicated as covering your area, is on the engineering list under the heading of "possible weak signal, which in your case of being located at approximately 27 miles away from the transmitter could result in no signal being received, therefore, if by any chance you carried out a retune whist the signal was down? this action will have deleted everything stored in the tuners memory, creating the situation of frequent retunes being necessary to recover / reload the channels back into said memory.
Should though the aforementioned not be applicable in your particular case, then if, which appearances might possibly suggest, you are connected into a communal aerial system? it would be prudent to make an enquiry with a neighbour to ascertain if they are also suffering from the same problem with reception as yourself.
The point being, that although engineering work might well be in progress of being carried out, the signal is never turned down for any more than about an hour or so at the most.
