Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Moel-Y-Parc transmitter area
Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
23:30h Sunday, November 13th, 2011
Moel-y-Parc PSB-3 UHF channel 42
No signal being received, so no reception of HD stations, but PSB-1 and PSB-2 reception normal.
Is there engineering work or a fault at the transmitter or a problem with the distribution of the HD multiplex to the transmitter?

KMJ: Thanks for the response. Yes that is a possibility but I thought inversion effects were less likely late at night, and if the signal from Sutton Coldfield was so strong to swamp Moel-y-Parc I would have thought that there might be a pixellated picture from Sutton Coldfield instead, but the TV was reporting "no or weak signal". Not being physically present at the TV, I was not able to check the signal strength/quality indications.
The receiving antenna is fairly directional, being a Televes DAT 45 with MRD, and the Sutton Coldfield signal would be coming in at approximately 130 degrees counter clockwise from the direction the antenna is pointing at Moel-y-Parc.
Thus for the Sutton Coldfield signal to swamp the signal from Moel-y-Parc would be exceptional, but of course not impossible under extreme conditions.
I was hoping to find out if anybody knew whether or not they were actually doing some work at the transmitter and if anybody else was affected. As most people do not yet have a DVB-t2 receiver, the number of people affected would be small.
