Help with Freeview, aerials?

Fror the last weeks or so I have been unable to receive channels on multiplexes COM5 and COM6, whereas previously I could. Either I get no signal at all on the affected channels, or the picture suffers from "blocking" or worse. Retuning my tv and two hard-disc recorders makes no difference. My postcode is CT4 5PR, and I receive my signals from the Dover transmitter. I have a wide-band aerial installed in my loft, which has worked fine up until the onset of these problems. From persusing your website it would appear that my problems may be caused by two-frequency interference. Can your please give me some advice as to how I can rectify this situation, please! Many thanks.

Your problem is highly unlikely to be two-frequency interference (or any interference) although some predictions show you might possibly get some weather related interference later on Tuesday!
On the Dover transmitter page it does advise about Planned Engineering taking place (last week and it continues this week) and it has done for some recent weeks - Possible effect on TV reception week commencing 01/11/2021 Possible Pixelation or flickering on some or all channels.
The predicted reception for your Locale is variable for COM5 (also COM4) which won't be helped at all by the engineering!
It's never advised to retune when you have No signal or badly pixellated pictures. It will often just clear the correct tuning that you had, and you'll have to repeat the retune when signals are better or return (might need several tries).
It is possible that you may pick up other transmitters off the back of your aerial, so -
Check in your TV's tuning section that you are correctly tuned for the UHF channels for Dover which are -
C33, C35, C36, C39, C42 & C48
That's in multiplex order PSB1/BBC A, PSB2/D3&4, PSB3/BBCB HD, COM4/SDN, COM5/ArqA, COM6/ArqB,
If you don't have an HD tuner, ignore C36.
