Loft aerials | Installing
Saturday 16 July 2011 11:09AM

I have a Technik TV with built in Freeview. I have just upgraded my aerial to a Philex SLX48DW Digital aerial in my loft and have it pointed at Emley Moor transmitter which is in sight some 5 miles or so away. When first installed yesterday 15th July (fine weather)I picked up over 100 channels. Today in poor weather (rain but only light wind)I can only receive 54 channels and no BBC, though ITV is fine.
Does bad weather usually have such a marked effect or are there issues with Emley Moor? BBC reception was poor before I upgraded the aerial, having originally been relatively OK. What solution can you recommend please?
