Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Nottingham transmitter area
Indeed. The real frustration is knowing that we used to have at leat useable reception on this channel. I didn't give you the full picture of my efforts yesterday but I took the dipole assembly off (it's only a plastic clip) removed the cable connection and pcb, cleaned and reassembled it all. The 2m cable run looks undamaged. I checked the alignment of all the elements (talk about clutching at straws). It all looks great, as you'd see if we could post photos.
Like you, I have to suspect the aerial but really can't justify the effort of replacement when it all looks so new. We are only 5km from the relay and the terrain profile shows nothing between us and it, other than the odd tree.
I would consider reorientating to Sutton if it weren't for the desire to get East Midlands news. Despite the alignment differences, I seem to get a significant signal from there! Walton isn't an option as there is an undeniable topographic obstruction in that direction.
Anyway, many thanks for your time and thoughts. I'll go and fix something I can fix.

Hmm, always interesting to see what else you can get.
Now, one question I haven't asked, because of your background I expect subconsciously I might have expected you to have mentioned it if it were so, but are there any new (or changed) mobile phone masts near you?
I'm wondering if there's a strong enough signal, is it getting into your system between the TV and or at the Distribution amp? If so, might it desensitise the TV tuner especially at the top end?
How easy would it be to try the filter at the back of the TV with the aerial coupled direct to the downlead (amp off)?
More straw clutching - is there an unused VHF input on the distribution amp? If so, try a shorted plug on the input, who knows what interference may get in there!
As you have a distribution amp, do you have maybe a small(er) TV on a different downlead/output that you could compare strengths/quality between C48 and the other channels? No need for exact figures, just comparisons, nor exact comparisons with the main TV.
If you have a smaller TV, how easy would it be to take it to the loft and connect direct to the aerial (no amp) and try a channel comparison and if need be also with the filter. If not practical could you have such set at the bottom of the loft stairs and have a separate length of coax from the aerial coax to the set?
This could be all straw clutching, but might eliminate any obscure possibilities!

I thought I had replied yesterday but I can't now see that post.
It was just to say that out of sheer frustration, I am going to try pointing the aerial at Waltham - we want E Midlands options.
The aerial looks fine and all connections measure as perfect. There's ;its;e else to do.
