Winter Hill (Bolton, England) transmitter
Monday 21 November 2011 7:30PM

I have completely lost all com6 channels in the Macclesfield 4 4 music etc. All of them in that group. This has happened fairly recently... say in the last month.

Also the picture on certain other channels like BBC2 is more jerky at times.

We have a communal aerial but have never had major problems before. Is Winter Hill altering its output power and signals?

Hi I have a problem with a communal aerial system only on Channel 54 PSB 3 Winter Hill

Its off the richter scale of annoyance because I cant/wont ask my neighbours and the landlord isn't too bothered about things like this. Taking my box to friends and family is just hassle I dont need

His aerial system looks like spaghetti junction and its probably faulty , short circuited or badly/over amplified. I doubt an attenuator will work and cant understand why its only on the PSB 3 band

His aerial is possibly misaligned but why does it receive other channels perfectly

I have been running though a checklist and its not HDMI radiation and my Coax leads are quality QED double screened. I dont unfortunately have another HD receiver to prive my Humax tuner may be faulty.

It can work for a while but generally now just loses signal rapidly flashing on and off.

Its so annoying that I may have to move. I need control of my own aerial
