Apologies, I had meant to come back and post sooner but have been quite busy.
It wasn't weather conditions causing the low signal. The signal was low before and during the most recent period of "tropo" - which turned out to be quite marginal despite predictions (not as strong as the previous conditions just before & over new year).
During this recent tropo I was seeing a slight lift in all signals from Mendip & Wenvoe (& a slight lift on some from Stockland Hill) but including Mendip COM7 which was still well below COM8's level, they are normally identical. After the tropo, the COM7 signal was still down, but a day or two after, whatever the fault was got fixed and it returned to normal levels as I mentioned in my previous post.
