22 hours ago Belper
Paul and Ryan.

I live 32 miles from the Sutton Coldfield transmitter in Belper. I have a class 2 aerial on the roof. the quality is 10 for all transmissions and the signal strength for all of them is about 60%.

So my point exactly, a right mess.

If you had your system done some years ago, not bad, if has done in say last 1 to 2 years, tough luck, ouch.

I said it was massive and very robost.
So all those had the hi gain awesome aerials outside and masthead amps and boosters suddenly find, over kill, especially if live say within 20 miles of sutton.

When I said tough luck, not mean me, not being nasty, I feel for you all.
I mean, likely the attitude of many, even if not cowboy, installers, if truthful should have said, by the way you may have trouble again in the future when they switchover.

But of course not going to get that, or they then get put off having it.

Those that got it weak to medium and no amps, now find what is the fuss all about quote 'I cannot understand why people are complaining about their signals'.

So of course, if you did not do it, and not sure how to buy and fit an attenuator you do what, call out the installer again, yeepee, they laughing and making loads more money, be shocked if this is not happening big time.

Anyone any good will be booked, so looking for someone (desperate) who is not, risks the cowboys, who must be relishing all this the last few years in different areas and still got Crystal Palace, south east way to go yet, oops.
A complete mess, as usual, like it always was from the start with OnDigial.
Satellite 8 out of 10
Freeview 4 out of 10.
Others, who knows 6 out of 10 maybe.
