Mike Rhodes: There is currently a notice on the Winter Hill transmitter page on this site warning of periods of potentially weak signal, usually due to ongoing engineering works. Unfortunately there is no indication of when this work is due to be completed.

I suggest you ask the actual broadcaster. This website is not associated with any broadcaster, it is intended to assist viewers with reception problems, etc.

Last night while watching Channel 5 I had loads of interference, pixel type, it got so bad I had to go to the 105 channel. Why is this happening and is it only during hot weather? I have an attic aerial which was fitted by an aerial chap. I think my transmitter is the Redruth one. My postcode is TR26 1BX

Kathleen: I don't know why you were getting interference on ch 5, but if you get good reception on 105, the HD service, then you are getting a better quality picture anyway.

It could be due to the high pressure over some parts of the country and the hot weather. That often causes signals to travel further than usual and hence causes the type of interference you describe. Do not try to retune your equipment.

As no-one more expert has responded; I know nothing about the location and frequencies involved but as a general rule the weather and what are known as "propagation conditions" ( the behavior of radio waves as they travel, or are propagated, from one point to another) both change with the conditions of the atmosphere.

Please fix commenting on this page:…ion/
so that it doesn't keep throwing you out and in to a freeview prediction page.

Also please answer the question I posted there which it's now impossible to view (you just end up viewing freeview questions) about the shortcomings of that radio prediction page when it comes to DAB.

Kathleen: Hi, Kathleen. If you can watch channel 5 in HD on channel number 105, why are you bothered about not being able to watch it in standard definition on channel number 5? Richard, Norwich.
