Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Sutton Coldfield transmitter area
Rod: I just found a postcode on an old post of yours - your half a km from the Redditch transmitter (you could just wander along and ask them)! Your pretty much fine with a bit of old wire. I'd certainly troubleshoot!
Sutton is also having engineering, but since your only 33km away from the main transmitter, you'd expect something.
