Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Waltham transmitter area
Since 5.30am today (27.12.14), have no signal for most channels. Usually get good reception on all through a signal booster in lounge, 4 way splitter is in loft, aerial on chimney stack on roof. All TVs in house affected, the only channels available are those from multiplex COM4. Usual checks/retunes/deletion of all channels and another first time installation done. Still no channels except those from MUX COM4. Waltham and Sutton Coldfield transmitters are both a long way away but are our nearest proper transmitters and give a full selection of channels normally. House halfway up a hill in a sort of geological 'basin'. Snowfall last night when BBC2 was pixellating somewhat (unusual) checked aerial and cables - no damage) weather bright today with clear skies, snow on ground. Tonight TV reception still the same, no improvement. Four mobile phone aerials are in close proximity to house - does anyone know if these have been switched to boost 4G signal today?? As apparently this can block TV signal boosters. I have contacted "at800" but of course no-one there and they take ten working days to come and supply a 'filter' - hope this works if that's the cause. But I am annoyed at having my festive season's viewing disrupted when I have plenty of spare time to be a couch potato at the moment. If today was the big 4G boost at mobile phone masts, then what a mean time to do this to poor pensioners and others who cant afford sky or virginmedia and are dependent on Freeview! But the people who got a 4G mobile phone in their stocking are happy! Has anyone else had problems in my area? Tried everything, will try again tomorrow. Just hope "at800" can send someone and don't just send a device for me to install, as I can't as I have arthritis and am having a hand op very soon, was looking forward to convalescing watching TV!
