Mrs Aspin: Which channels are you or have you had issues with?
It may be helpful if I point out that Kendal Fell transmitter is a Public Service one only (carries BBC, ITV1, ITV2, Channel 4, E4, More 4, Channel 5, HD and a few others).
If you are receiving Commercial channels such as ITV3, Pick TV, Yesterday, Dave, Film 4 and many others, then you are not picking them up from Kendal Fell. If your aerial faces Kendal Fell and you pick up these channels, then poor reception of these channels may ensue.
The solution is to have an aerial fitted for another transmitter which carries these services, *if* you are in a location where such signals can be picked up reliably.
See also the postings from "Transmitter engineering" above and before yours. It is from the BBC and says "Wrong Region" from 23:37 to 03:13. I wonder if this was your cause. Has the problem corrected itself?

I've been experiencing above average channel loss over the last month from the Kendal Fell Transmitter (Freeview). BBC channels have been fine (no loss) but for the most part the independent channels have been showing "No Signal" on my TV.
The aerial is situated in my attic and has provided good reception up until a month ago.
I've checked the cable and connections and nothing seems untoward.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance...
