Pauline Bell:

When did you have a signal last? Was it before 10th August or is it much more recent?
Which way is your aerial pointing (there's more than one transmitter you might receive).?
Is your aerial pointing more or less due W or is it pointing in a more southerly direction?

As I can't currently find any faults listed for any of those transmitters, you should check all your connections and coax plugs etc.

According to your other post, as you have retuned, you might just as well repeat that after doing the basic checks. Post back with more information.

I receive the Bluebell Transmitter, now I understand that Com 7 has closed. How am still able to receive Freesports?

Geoff Gilham:

COM7 has NOT closed at Bluebell Hill.
As noted on the Bluebell Hill transmitter page, it was the subject of Planned Engineering last week and may have been subject to power reductions and if you are in a marginal reception location that may be the reason. As you haven't given a full postcode, we can't advise on predicted reception in your locale.

IF you retuned at all whilst you had no or very weak/pixellated signal, it will probably just have cleared your correct tuning. Retuning is NEVER advised if you have correct tuning and no signal or badly pixellated pictures.
You will need to either manually try tuning UHF C55 IF you did retune before or a full retune if you can't do that.

If transmitter work has not been completed you may still have to try again when signals are back to normal.
