tony powell :

You are predicted to get excellent reception from Sandy Heath, which is just 34 km away. There is no reported faults at that transmitter. So please check your aerial system, checking all the cables are undamaged and that all connections are in perfect order. Unplug all coaxial plugs/sockets and then refit. Then check the signal strength shown for all the multiplexes. You should ideally have between 60% and 85% for all channels. If it is stronger then you have too much signal and it shoyld be reduced with an attenuator. If it is too low then you need a stronger aerial, a wideband type or a log-periodic.
