From Wikipedia: For the indie rock band, see The Dramas. The enactment of drama in theatre, performed by actors on a stage before an audience, presupposes collaborative modes of production and a collective form of reception. The structure of dramatic texts, unlike other forms of literature, is directly influenced by this collaborative production and collective reception.2 The early modern tragedy Hamlet 1601 by Shakespeare and the classical Athenian tragedy Oedipus the King c. - link icon read more about Drama on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).

Rigelprime: Have you checked if any of your neighbours on the same communal system are missing the COM channels? COM4 & COM 6 are showing as variable on the prediction for your postcode, however COM5 should have a good signal (Dover doesn't transmit COM7). Have you contacted the management company about it? Ultimate they are the only ones in a position to make any changes/improvements to the communal aerial.

Doreen Cannon:

To be able to help you we need a full post code so that we can check which transmitter you are using (there are opver 1000 of them around the UK). Then we can check what the reception conditions are like at your location.

Meantime, check all your aerial connections by unplugging and reconnecting.
