Judith Lee: Two multiplexes at Mendip moved to their final channels on 28 September, and these final locations clash with the transmissions from Usk.
My guess is that your aerial is horizontally-polarized and pointing at Mendip. Digital UK predict that you should get a reliable service from Usk if you have the right aerial set up correctly.
You will not be able to get the commercial multiplexes from Mendip any more, however.
See Will there ever be more services on the Freeview Light transmitters? | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice for the explanation of why Usk will not get any more services.
