LA6 2NL - Melling transmitter.

We have been periodicaly losing the signal from the Melling transmnitter ever since the digital service began.

Sometimes it only efects BBC. At other times BBC is the only one that is OK. At the moment (16:38 Saturday 07 May) it is effecting all chanels.

We are becoming sick and tired of the quality of our digital reception on Freeview as we are only 3 miles from Melling on the other side of the river.

Join the club. We frequently lose the signal from the Melling transmitter which is 3.8 miles in direct line of site from our roof mounted arial, which needs a booster to recieve any signal at all. We have direct line of site with our house being at 158ft and the transmitter at 328ft and no high ground in between. We loose all channels except BBC regularly and whenever there is bad weather we loose all chanels.

Frankly Digital is a great disapointment.

Having checked with many others in the village this is not only my experience but everyone receiving digital on other than satelite are experiencing the same thing.

Its OK for the transmitter authorities to say that there have been no complaints but no one seems to know how to complain. If you don't have a computer, and few in this rural community do, then you don't stand a chance.

And we pay the same licence fee as everyone else!!
