Oct -- 2020 -- I think a lot of the problems are the upcoming 5G Mobile Phone and it is likely to get worse. OFCOM are CLEARING the 700MHz Band ready to auction off in January 2021. In short the 700MHz band has been now allocated to ---Europe wide-- 5G mobile phone and OFCOM has basically told TV channels to get out of this band and OFCOM has thereby reassigned them to "OTHER Frequencies". If I remember correctly OFCOM recently said something like .........15 to 20 people in the UK may need to install a New TV Antenna....... YEP ....... check out all the latest .... No not the TV channel or Mendip but 5G/OFCOM. The Only FIX many well be a NEW TV ANTENNA and a NEW TV Boost amplifier if you have one installed, since they may no longer cover the NEW Channel Frequency assigned. In ADDITION the PROBLEM is NEW TVs. In brief they self scan and see a NEW CHANNEL and/or an old one GONE and reslot it. You may see on your TV the channel you are usd to watching --BUT-- it's been MOVED and you TV automatically retracked it --BUT-- the NEW Channel frequency may well be out of ban of you existing TV antenna etc. and hence what you see is ..."crap TV.. signal......" THE FIX .... I think is go read some more at OFCOM and other sites and basically you may have to install a NEW Antenna .....
