Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Emley Moor transmitter area
I live in Norton Sheffield & recieve my signal from the Dronfield transmitter.
Can you tell me what is happening as the signal for ITV 1 , 2 ,4, 5, more 4, E4 & film 4 stopped working at 10.00am today. It came back 2 hours later and has now gone again tonight.
It also effects my next door neighbour.
I have tried retuning the tv and have now lost all the channels from my tv

Norman Cook: There is engineering works at Emley Moor which might interrupt television broadcasts. We have had reports from people using Emley who've had interruption to ITV etc.
As Dronfield transmitter receives its signal off-air from Emley then maybe at times the signal from Emley isn't good enough for it.
The answer is not to retune because that's just shooting yourself in the foot. It's only compounded the problem!
