For anyone still experiencing Freeview reception problems from the Rowridge transmitter, particularly on UHF Ch 28 (Channel 19 - Yesterday and others on the same COM6 MUX). This evening I moved my TV aerial from a horizontal (polarisation)position to a vertical position. i.e twisted the aerial 90 degrees from the original position while still keeping it pointing in the same direction. Now perfect reception. Fortunately my aerial is only in my loft so easily accessible. My location is Fareham, Hants. This improvement can be explained by the fact that Rowridge has a far stronger signal in the vertical polarisation than the horizontal polarisation for these particular channels. All channel reception is now fine.
