Roger Palmer:

The fact that you were only receiving 40 channels instead of the usual 128-140 is probably down to some "Tropospheric Ducting" which is occurring at present - see https://www.radioandtvhelp.co.uk/help-guides/television/effect-of-tropospheric-ducting-on-freeview for a simplified explanation.
There currently aren't any reported transmitter faults or engineering at Caradon Hill.

Do NOT retune when you have loss or breakup of signal (whatever the cause) as this usually clears correct tuning, and when there is "tropo" you may get tuned to a distant transmitter in Europe, Eire or the UK.
This doesn't always affect all multiplexes and can come and go over seconds, minutes or hours. Unfortunately it was predicted to be quite strong over parts of Devon and Cornwall and may cause further disruption over the next couple of days. It should settle down and have cleared by Wednesday.

AJ:

Apologies that we seem to have missed your post a week ago. NO it is NOT 4G Interference which as you mention is the 800MHz band. There are no TV transmissions near the 800MHz band which was cleared some years ago. The 700Mhz band which has recently been cleared for future 5G transmissions hasn't been sold yet so that is not going to have any effects. Unless you have a mobile mast VERY close to you, you are unlikely to have any problems with interference in any event whether it be 800 or 700 MHz.

Sutton Coldfield is currently listed for Planned Engineering with the most likely outcome being "Possible weak signal", but experience says that there could also be brief interruptions.
As has been mentioned before, advice is Do NOT retune when you have loss or breakup of signal (whatever the cause) as this usually just clears correct tuning and you'll have to retune again later when signals return (to normal).
