Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Winter Hill transmitter area
How old is your aerial installation? If it is several years before the final 700MHz Clearance retune in August 2020, it may well be an old Group C/D aerial which isn't deigned to pick up the lower channels now used by Winter Hill very effectively. COM4/SDN is the lowest.
You say no other channels are affected but unless you've looked in your TV tuning section at the signal strength and quality for each multiplex, they may be also suffering a reduction in signal but not sufficient to appear as a problem and this of course can vary with the weather especially when water is getting into the aerial connections or coax.
In the multiplex order BBCA/PSB1, D3&4/PSB2, BBCB HD/PSB3, SDN/COM4, ArqA/COM5, ArqB/COM6, COM7
Winter Hill UHF channels are -
The main multiplexes are C32, C34, C35, C29, C31, C37, C55
The Local ones are Local Manchester, Manchester GI on C24 & C27.
Liverpool Local mux on C21, Preston Local mux on C40.
You are predicted to get good reception of the main multiplexes, but variable recption of the Preston Local mux. You aren't predicted to get the others. As you've discovered you're predicted to get some (good) reception from the Moel y Parc (Wales) transmitter.
Look in your TV Tuning section for the Signal Strength and Quality (or Error/BER) figures for each UHF multiplex and post the figures. It should give us a feel for what is going on.
Be careful with signal boosters, too much signal can appear to give similar issues as too little. Eg. if you have 100% signal but NOT 100% Quality you may have too much signal. You should always have 100% Quality, but really excesaive signal can overload the tuner front end and appear to give less signal strength as well as less quality.
