Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Dover transmitter area
silvano webb: It means that your TV isn't receiving a signal, probably because something was damaged by the storm. Is your aerial still pointing the same way as your neighbours aerials? It may have been blown out of alignment by the high winds or the cable may have been damaged or be letting water in causing a short circuit.

Lorna Smith :
You may live in Ramsgate but are you getting your reception from the Ramsgate transmitter or one of the main transmitters? There are several Meridian transmitters currently listed for Planned Engineering with Possible effect on TV reception eg. "Pixelation or flickering on some or all channels".
However, just to compound matters there are currently some weather related problems. In the Analogue days it was usually referred to as "Continental Interference" due to "Sporadic E"
Today we can suffer "Tropospheric Ducting" which can result in the same problems - interference from more distant transmitters in Europe or the UK.
Both Freeview and the BBC have issued warnings about short term interference to reception.
