Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Darvel transmitter area
I can't find any current fault reports for the transmitter and it's not listed for planned engineering and neither is it's parent transmitter as this is a relay transmitter.
However, current weather conditions might be causing temporary disruption to reception. This should clear quickly but may return later over the next day or two. Do NOT retune when you have no signal as this generally just clears your correct tuning and you'll then have to repeat the process when signals are normal and you can't be sure when that may be, so it could be rather hit and miss.

Yes the heat has been intolerable. The predictions for Tropospheric Ducting weather conditions have indicated some quite variable and periodically strong ducting for a number of areas and even the BBC have listed warnings for disruption to reception for quite a few Scottish (relay) transmitters.
I'll try and get the site owner's attention drawn to the posting issue.
