Wenvoe (Cardiff, Wales) Full Freeview transmitter
Wednesday 26 January 2011 8:07PM

Hallo Briantist. We have been receiving all channels satisfactorily by Freeview from the Wenvoe transmitter. We watch ITV3 a good deal and this breaks up sometimes when the atmospheric pressure is high. Just recently we've had poor reception on all the channels and ITV3 has all but disappeared. This was how it was when the Wenvoe transmitter wasn't operating on full power before switchover. Although we live close to Wenvoe (in Cowbridge) we live under the lip of a hill and require amplification equipment to boost the signal. Is there anything wrong with Wenvoe at the moment? I thought it was transmitting all multiplexes at 70,000 watts or more - but now it seems down to 50,000 and that isn't enough power it seems to reach us. Have you any suggestions?
