I live in Churt and I keep losing signal from Hannington. I have spoken with an Aerial specialist and he has said others in my area are having the same issue. Please explain why.

It could well be due to the high pressure acrioss the UK currently. Many people are having ther reception compromised by it. It is a well known natural phenomenon about which noby can do anything to change it.

HI - apologies for the repost but since the last "upgrade/Channel Switch" we have lost Freeview channels 90-99 (Forces TV etc) and no matter how many times we have re-tuned cannot pick them up. Our post code is GU10 2QL

Any ideas?

Many thanks

Richard Allen:

The predicted reception for your location, according to the post code you have helpfully given, shows that you are unlikely to get much useful reception from Hannington, but that Crystal Palace would be a better option. See Coverage Checker - Detailed View

It suggests that you are aunlikely to get resonable reception of COMs 7 or 8. You would need a wideband aerial to stand any chance of getthing those, though you are quite some way from the transmitter and thos multiplexes are brodcast as=t a lower power than the main 6 multuiplexes.

Apologies to all, there was a fault in my code that was showing the final position for the 700MHz clearance, rather than the correct interim one of 45 42 39 40 43 46 55 56.

I've just done a scan and noticed that the _local mux is on 32 and 34 - both carrying the same content (local + Sony movies).

I live in Church Crookham GU52 6LY , and experience a complete outage of ITV signals every Friday evening until Monday AM since early March

From Mondays to Fridays the reception is excellent

I have retuned both my sets and settop boxes every time but to no awvail. The recorder simply cannot work during these shut offs.

Please expedite a proper repir and restore service. ASAP

David: Firstly, retuning is the worst thing to do when you loose signal as you are deleting all your correctly tuned channels and just searching for them again, which will never fix anything. Also, no one on this website has any connection with the transmitter company or any broadcaster. If you are loosing signal at the same time each day/week then you are almost certainly suffering with local electrical interference from some piece of equipment either within your home or nearby which is only operating at the weekend. It's very unlikely the be anything at the transmitter as there would be hundreds of people complaining if they lost ITV every weekend.
