Tacolneston (Norfolk, England) Full Freeview transmitter
Wednesday 18 June 2014 6:59AM

Hi there,

I'm based in Taverham, Norfolk and have been experiencing issues with total loss of TV signal last week (Friday, Saturday 13th/14th June). The signal returned to normal on Sunday (15th) and has been fine since the weekend until last night (17th) and this morning (18th) it has totally gone again.

I have a roof aerial and although the signal we get here is on the weak side, we've never had trouble like this before. We've certainly not lost the main channels (BBC, ITV, C4) before.

I can't see that the issue is local as nothing in my setup has changed, roof aerial looks fine and all connections are in place.

At the weekend there were reports of weak signal on the Tacolneston transmitter, so I assumed that was related. However there are no such reports this week and I'm struggling to understand why I've got total loss of signal again. Can someone put my mind at rest and confirm that they are experiencing similar issues? Most of my neighbours have satellite dishes so it's difficult to find people using terrestrial these days!

Many thanks,

Our TV reception came back strong last night at about 9pm. Still working this morning. No mentions of problems elsewhere online. It's just weird!

Oh well, hopefully it'll stay ok for the football tonight!
