Belmont (Lincolnshire, England) Full Freeview transmitter
Saturday 2 March 2013 1:45PM

We get our Freeview from Belmont and have actual line of sight to the transmitter (it's only about 10 miles away as the crow flies)and we have recently started getting drop outs on some TV channels. Further investigation shows that this is only occurring on channels from the COM6 (ArqB) Mux on channel 60 all he others are fine. Whilst I understand that there are projected issues with 4G mobile signals and TV signals from about C50 and above I can find no mention of anyone working on 4G in this area (in fact it's hard enough to even get a 3G signal round here). Channels on COM5 (C53, nearest frequency wise) and COM4 (lowest power 50KW as opposed to 100KW) are all fine as are the high powered MUXs which also rules out signal overload). Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this?
